History of Indonesian currency

Before the arrival of Europeans to Indonesia, various means of payment were already used, such as beads or coins. With the arrival of Western trade began the use various European currencies and also the ones pcoming from the Spanish colonies in South America.

With the colonization on the part of Holland, they began to implant Dutch currencies that they imported to the zone from Holland and also some coins were minted there. The official currency then was the Netherlands Indies gulden.

During the World War II, the Japanese occupied Indonesia and brought their own issuance of the dulden. After the war there was much economic and political instability that finally ended with the issuance of the Rupiah as the official currency and with the creation of the Bank of Indonesia as the issuing agency.
