50 Rupiah

What can 50 cents buy you these days? Well, practically nothing much now. I’ve got this thing about collecting coins from other countries and the one that amazed me the most was the 50 Rupiah from Indonesia.

Yes you heard me right. In countries like Malaysia, England, Australia you have what you called a cent coin system. But in places like Indonesia, Japan, Korea you have the fixed currencies which have no cents at all. So considering that, things are paid by a thousand like 10,000 Rupiah for a piece of bread. Hmm… but a significant 50 Rupiah, that’s rare though. So here’s how a 50 Rupiah looks like.

It’s feels a bit light. If only 50 Rupiah was 50 Pound.
