How to Type Rupee Symbol on Mac

If you have been following us closely, you already know we published an article on this topic but for Windows a while ago. We realized that due to the increasing number of Mac users, it deserved a separate tutorial, so here we are. 

As per Wikipedia and other sources, the origin of the Indian Rupee, internationally known as INR, dates back to circa 6th century BCE. Until 14 July 2010, the Rupee Symbol was basically “Rs.” However, on 15 July 2010, the Indian Government introduced the new symbol ₹. 

The symbol has emerged from combining the Devanagari letter ‘Ra’ and the Roman capital letter ‘R’. Its appearance consists of two horizontal lines resembling the national flag and the mathematical ‘equal’ sign. The rupee symbol is placed before the number without any space in between.
