New Paper Currency Rp 2000

Temporarily Officials (Pejabat sementara/Pjs.) of the Governor of Bank Indonesia, Miranda S. Goeltom, accompanied by Deputy Governor of Bank Indonesia, S. Budi Rochadi, Governor of South Kalimantan province, Rudy Ariffin, and the Governor of Central Kalimantan province, Agustin Teras Narang, was officially launched the new paper currency Rp 2,000, emission of year 2009 , as a means of legitimate payment in Indonesia on Thursday 9 July 2009 in Banjarmasin city. These new paper currency valid as means of payment starting from 10 July 2009.

In her speech Miranda S. Goeltom said (translated in English by me):
"Publishing the new paper currency is the implementation of Bank Indonesia policy in the field of money circulation that is to satisfy the requirement of rupiah's currency in the society with enough nominal, kinds of currency which it appropriate, on time and in feasible conditions to circulate."

At the front side there is the image Pangeran Antasari (a national heroe origin from Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan province) and at the back side there is the image Tarian Adat Dayak (traditional dance origin Kalimantan). Using national heroes as the themes for currency design also applied for previously currencies that has been published.

I'm curious why the design of United States dollar rarely changed. Just my question. Does anyone know?

  1. "Hmm... I confused why the design of United States dollar rarely changed"..

    Let's speculate. Maybe it's because the US has run short on heroes, while Indonesian heroes and heroines are still abundant?

  4. Colson - You're very clever, like our friend Eha said. ha..ha...ha... :D

    Eha - Really an unpredictable comment from Colson, ha..ha...
    Plainly, partly of our society still does not treat their money properly, such as folded it until tangly, arranged it with staples. Right?

    TopNews - Same with me.

  6. Hi tikno,
    thanks for visiting my blog.
    why change dollar design? there is no need, changing it will only confused a lot of people. It is nice that Indonesian government is honoring their heroes by putting their faces on new currency. US on the other hand honor their heroes in different ways.
    Have a nice day!

  7. Seno - mungkin juga karena banyak pemalsuan.

    Nance - During my life, I have seen several times that the design of Indonesian currency has changed (re-design), while on the other hand I have never seen design changes for U.S. dollar.

  8. either they are just too damn proud of their current design, or they are just too lazy LOL!!

    Nah, I have no idea either!

    But seriously, designs in currency don't change much often dont they? The last time Singapore revamped its currency design was 10 years ago, before they do changes of the material use from paper to plasticky texture.

  9. Common Singaporean - You right! changing the design indeed does not make it more valuable. Previously, Indonesia also have currency using plastic materials, but was changed with paper material. I don't knows why.

VETO VS DEMOCRACY

In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

VETO
According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…

The inner voices when I am get old

One day in January 2010, I visited my grandfather (father of my mother) and my grandmother (grandmother of my wife). I could feel how happy they are with my presence, as well as myself. I can see despite their spirit remains alive but I can not deny that their physical abilities has decreased naturally. So I start to think how if I'm getting old like them. While thinking of it, suddenly my mind remembered a touching story that was discovered by my family, Yenny Ang. Whatever I had felt and imagined, I pour it into this post. Hopefully your love to the elderly and your parents will be more.

When I'm get old.

When I spilled vegetable's gravy on my clothes,
when I no longer remember how to tie a tie,
when I no longer remember how to tie shoelaces,
remember the time how I teach and guide you to do that.

While I am senile and constantly repeating the word that bores you,
please be patient to listen to me, do not interrupt me.
At the days of your childhood, with affection I kept …

Mr. Money is not guilty

This is a special guest post. The grievances and notice from Mr. Money that share it in sorrow to readers. Please read carefully below :

My name is Mr. Money (sometime was called : Dough). My face is just plain, my physical is also weak, but I am able to overhaul the world order.

I'm able to change the behavior even human nature because humans idolize me. Many people change their personality, betray friends, sell their bodies, even abandon their faith, for my sake. That's not my command, note that!

I really do not understand the difference of pious and depraved people, but humans using me as a benchmark, determine rich or poor, honorable or lowly. Blame to human, not me.

I am not devil, but often people do abominations because of me. So I ask for justice who is the real devil.

I'm not the third person to make them divorced or make children and parents quarrel. I beg to the judge to re-examine this case.

It is very clear that I am not God. You must obey your religion forbid…

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…
