Here is a beautiful high denomination bank note issued by the Bank of Indonesia in 1964. The detailed engraving on the front of the note features a worker on a rubber plantation and the Indonesian coat of arms. Rubber accounts for 40%of the country's exports . The back of the bill shows a quaint house built on stilts to guard it against floods.
This note was printed on hidden presses by the guerrilla resistance fighters at the risk of their very lives. The Japanese Military authorities issued orders that anyone caught in possession of guerrilla money was to be shot. Thus the battle was not only military, but also economic . This piece of Guerrilla is a stirring example of how a nation's money reflects its history. A nice piece of vintage world war two history.
