Indonesian rupiah
The rupiah is the national currency of Indonesia. Introduced in 1943, during the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies, to replace the gulden, in its early years the rupiah was used in conjunction with other currencies. Since 1950, it has had a lengthy history of inflation and revaluation. As of August 2018, the currency—which is issued and controlled by the Bank of Indonesia—is trading for more than 14,000 rupiah to the United States dollar.

This note, denominated 1,000 rupiah, is part of the 2000 series. It depicts Pattimura, a National Hero of Indonesia, on its obverse, and the islands of Maitara and Tidore on its reverse.
