Indonesia
Indonesia is an archipelago nation and former Dutch colony in South East Asia. Its capital is Jakarta.

Indonesian Coins
India was one of the earliest issuers of coins (circa 6th century BC). The first "rupee" is believed to have been introduced by Sher Shah Suri (1486-1545), based on a ratio of 40 copper pieces per rupee. During British rule, and the first decade of independence, it was subdivided into 16 annas. Each anna was subdivided into 4 paise or 12 pies. Until 1815, the Madras Presidency also issued a currency based on the fanam, with 12 fanams equal to the rupee. In 1918 and 1919, cupro-nickel 2, 4 and 8 annas were introduced, although the 4 and 8 annas coins were only issued until 1921 and did not replace their silver equivalents.
