Published: 23 January 2023| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/8ckhkssyn3.1


The dataset includes a total of 1,786 images of Indian currency notes from all seven denominations. As the Government of India made changes to Indian currency notes in recent years, there are two different types of notes for certain denominations. The valid Indian currency notes in this dataset are old and new 10-rupee notes, old and new 20-rupee notes, old and new 50-rupee notes, old and new 100-rupee notes, new 200-rupee notes, new 500-rupee notes, and new 2000-rupee notes. The images were captured using a mobile phone camera in various backgrounds and lighting conditions and from different angles. No image augmentation was performed on this dataset. The number of images for each denomination is as follows: 10 - 215 20 - 331 50 - 272 100 - 301 200 - 205 500 - 223 2000 - 239
