Please help I cant print it. always get a bad print

Steep overhangs and thin edges make for a difficult print.

Maybe cut it down the middle and print it in two halves? Glue together to avoid the overhangs.

Even with supports, the corners curl and it comes out awful looking. The best way to do print this is to do as you said and print in halves. The easiest way I've found is to move the model down on the Z axis in your slicer until half of it is below the build area and then duplicate it for the other half.

Protip: Superglue bonds PLA instantly. To ensure a good glue up, use a piece of tape as a hinge (like the binding of a book) to make sure it comes together right the first time. If you let the Rupee halves cool on the buildplate before peeling them off (so they don't warp), the finished product will look like it was printed in one piece.
