Is it rude if I won't send my pen pal a 5 Euro note?

So I am on a website where I found someone to exchange letters with, it is a girl from Sri Lanka.
She is not really my pen pal because it is only a one-time-thingy.
She asked me to put finnish bank notes into the letter because she already has coins (so Euro) but in my opinion 5€ is quite a lot considering it is just a one-time thing and she is not even my friend.
I don't know how to say that I don't want to do this.
I don't want to appear stingy and greedy :(

Updates:
Thank you all :)

  • Simply tell her you aren't comfortable with sending her money. If she wants paper back notes that bad she can come get them or send you some money to exchange and send back. You don't owe her anything. :-)

  • 5€ is $6
    Not that much. A sandwich and a coffee here.

  • No, it's not rude. It's your right not to send money to strangers. But are you willing to send it to me? (I've got a good sense of humor and I like travelling)

    • I don't think so.. she seems to be really nice and we've even skyped like 2 days ago

    • send her the money its not a huge sum

  • Probably just a con artist asking that same thing to multiple people. Don't bother in my opinion.
