The official currency of Bali - an island which makes up part of the Indonesian archipelago - is the Indonesian rupiah or IDR. The rupiah is subdivided into 100 sen.
The rupiah is issued and controlled by the Bank of Indonesia and its name ‘rupiah’ is a derivative of the Indian ‘rupiya’ and Sanskrit ‘rupyakam’ meaning ‘silver’.
Indonesians may also refer to the rupiah as ‘perak’, which is Indonesian for ‘silver’. The rupiah has been the official currency of Indonesia since 1946.
The rupiah’s most commonly used banknotes are the 2,000, 5,000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 & the 100,000.
