The Indonesian Sen was a currency formerly used but was phased out due to inflation.  Now the Rupiah is used solely (100 Sen equals one Rupiah).

The smallest bank note that was used in Indonesia in the year 1964 was the Satu Sen (or 1 Sen in English).  It features what appears to be a rice field farmer wearing a bamboo hat (topi bambu in Bahasa Indonesia). The front of the Satu Sen has Bank Indonesia printed on it. The back of it has the number 1 and a geometric design. Series 1964 , (AEK 072406) In Perfect condition like new.

Take a look at the following pictures of this 1964 One Sen Banknote from Indonesia Paper Money Uang Kertas Indonesia 1-Satu Sen Jaman Dulu Uang Kuno Tahun 1964 (P-90a) we have in uncirculated condition.  It is interesting that the size of this bank note is a bit smaller than currency used in Indonesia today.

In this post we will discuss an 1985 Indonesia 10000 Rupiah Banknote.  On its front side is an image of heroine (female hero) Raden Ayu Kartini who was an important figure and advocate for women’s rights in Indonesia.  She argued that the culture in Java (at the time) did not allow women to develop intellectually as they were often secluded and forced into arranged marriages at young ages.  She wrote about these and other issues.  After she died a foundation in her name was set up by a Dutch family who built several schools in her name.  Later on President Sukarno established a national holiday in her name.  Also on the front of this banknote is a picture of Candi Prambanan Temple.  The back side of this paper money has an image of a female receiving her diploma. Take a look at the pictures of our 1985 Sepuluh Rebu Rupiah currency banknote below.  Its appears to be in extremely fine condition with minimal wear and no pin holes or stains.

1837 Liberty Head Hard Times Token

 This post will take a look at an1837 Liberty Head Hard Times Token.  On the front is Lady Liberty flanked by stars on each side with American motto in latin words E Pluribus Unum.  The bottom of the obverse displays the year 1837.  During this period in US history a depression was going on and tokens like this were used as money (hence why it is called a Hard Times token).  On the reverse is the phrase "MILLIONS FOR DEFENSE NOT ONE CENT FOR TRIBUTE."  This was coined by Robert Goodloe Harper in the late 1700s in defiance of a request of bribes by Talleyrand (French Foreign Minister) in order to negotiate.  Apparently this wasn't something out of the ordinary for Talleyrand to request, American diplomats were offended.  The Quasi War occurred shortly afterwards and lasted for a couple of years.


Here we have a 1986 Indonesian 5000 Lima Ribu Rupiah currency banknote. On its front or obverse is a picture of Teuku Umar (1854 to 1899) who was leader an Aceh force against Dutch Colonial rule and who today is a Pahlawan Nasional Indonesia (National Indonesian Hero). The reverse or backside of this paper money has a picture of Menara Kudus Mosque which was built in 1549 and is where Sunan Kudus (Islamic Saint of Java) cemetary is located. This building is among the oldest mosques in Indonesia. This 1986 Indonesia 5000 Lima Ribu Rupiah currency banknote is crisp and is in uncirculated condition.
