What is the Indonesian Rupiah?
The rupiah (Rp) is the currency of the country of Indonesia--informally called "perak" by Indonesian people. Currently, the Indonesian rupiah consists of coins from 25-1000 rupiah and banknotes from 1000-100,000 rupiah. The conversion to the US dollar changes all the time, but generally 9,000 indonesian rupiah are worth $1 US.
Controlled by the Bank of Indonesia, the currency code for the Indonesian rupiah is IDR. Technically, the rupiah is divided into 100 sen. However, inflation has rendered currency in sen obsolete.
Understanding Indonesian Currency
Currently, there are two series of coins in circulation in Indonesia: aluminium and bronze coins from 1991-1998 and light-weight aluminium coins from 1999 onwards. Banknotes dating from 2000-2010 include the 1000, 5000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 and the 100,000 rupiah. The notes dating before 1999 are no longer legal tender since early 2008. Day to day transactions are usually conducted with bank notes, due to their low value compared to the US dollar.
Securing the banknotes is very important, and the Indonesian rupiah includes many security features, such as: watermarks, electrotypes, security threads with color fibres, holograms, Irisafe, iridescent stripes, gold patches and clear windows. In 2010, the 10,000 rupiah introduced the EURion constellation rings--designs that change color when viewed from different angles.
