    It's a lot older than that. I have a volume of a journal dated 1902 with "Price Rs. 9-0 per annum", printed on the cover (note the italics).
    In any case not every font has a good version : Times New Roman and Tahoma give Rp, not Rs. As far as I have checked only Doulos SIL and Arial Unicode have Rs.
