With all that has happened in Indonesia, the redesigning of the Indonesian currency has taken a step towards combining modern entities with Indonesia’s diverse culture. President Joko Widodo has just inaugurated the issue and distribution of 11 new banknotes with 12 national heroes posing to display the patriotism from all cultures standing from Sabang to Merauke. The design has changed a lot although the color scheme stayed its course. It uses a specialized paper material made out of strands of wool with Indonesian scenic horizons, national flowers, cultural dance and lavish patterns enriching the overall design of the banknotes.
It seems clear that the redesigning of the banknotes serves to once again unite all Indonesian and embrace the diversity of its abundant culture. Visit Bank Indonesia’s official page here for more information and go change to some of that fresh bills via your nearest bank.
