After thinking about this, I decided to do some math to determine the actual, real world value of a Hyrulean rupee.

In

I can buy a wooden mop for 19 mon from Kilton. Since the exchange rate is 1:1, that means the mop is worth 19 rupees.

In reality, your normal wooden mop is worth $16.98.

Using a simple exchange rate formula, C = A * B, where C is the money after the exchange, B is the exchange rate, and A is the currency you have.

By dividing by A, we can isolate the exchange rate, so C/A = B.

So all we have to do is divide 19 by 16.98 to determine the exchange rate.

19/16.98 = 1.1189634864546525323910482921084 or roughly, 1.12.

Thus if we use the US dollar, one US dollar can buy 1.12 Hyrulean rupees.

That means, if we divide one US dollar by the exchange rate, we can determine the actual dollar amount of 1 rupee.

1/1.12 = 0.89368421052631578947368421052632

Therefore, one Hylian rupee is worth, roughly, $0.89.

Take from that what you will.

*Breath of the Wild*I got curious and decided to sell some monster parts to Beedle and Kilton to determine if Mon and Rupees have different intrinsic value. Turns out, the exchange rate is 1:1 which makes the math easy.I can buy a wooden mop for 19 mon from Kilton. Since the exchange rate is 1:1, that means the mop is worth 19 rupees.
