The Indonesian Rupiah is the official currency of Indonesia and the name Rupiah is derived from the Indian Sanskrit word for silver.
The Indonesian Rupiah was introduced by Indonesian nationalists that were fighting for independence in 1946.
Bank Indonesia currently issues the following notes: 100,000, 75,000, 50,000, 20,000, 10,000, 5,000, 2,000 and 1,000 notes.
