According to an article in The Jakarta Post dated 28 October 2011, Bank Indonesia issued newly designed banknotes denominated in 20,000, 50,000, and 100,000 rupiah (US$2.25, 5.67, and 11.35, respectively) on 1 August 2011 in commemoration of Youth Pledge Day, although they bear no special commemorative text or images. The new notes do have enhanced security features, including “rainbow printing.” The notes also have new codes for the sight impaired. Existing notes of the same denominations will remain in circulation.
