The Low Down on Indonesian Currency

Currency:

Indonesian rupiah

Currency code:

IDR

Central Bank:

Bank Indonesia

Currency symbol:

Rp (rupiah)

Bank notes:

Rp 2,000, Rp 5,000, Rp 10,000, Rp 20,000
Rp 50,000, Rp 100,000




By 1971, the rupiah (IDR) had become the official currency of all of Indonesia’s 34 different provinces. Sen are to rupiah what pence are to pounds. One rupiah equates to 100 sen, but since even one rupiah does not carry much value, you will find next to nothing is priced in terms of sen.



Bargaining is a very typical practice in Indonesia, so never be afraid to negotiate the price on the items you want to buy. Before midday, you might be able to pay a ‘morning price’ for your goods – up to a 30% discount!



Notes are used a lot more frequently than coins in Indonesia – even though 1,000 IDR equate to less than one British penny, you will still find small bills paid with cash made up of 1,000 IDR notes, rather than the coin for the same amount. Any notes that are dated 1998–1999 are no longer legal tender, although you can exchange these until 2018 for current currency.
