The Indonesian rupiah (IDR) is the national currency of the Southeast Asian nation Indonesia. It traces its roots to 1946, when it was introduced by Indonesian independence fighters to replace one version of the Netherlands Indies gulden. The word "rupiah" is derived from the Sanskrit word "rupyaka," which means silver. "Perak," which also means silver, is what Indonesians call rupiah coins in casual conversation.
Indonesian rupiahs are issued by Bank Indonesia, while Perum Peruri prints and mints the banknotes and coins. Many live casinos and other Internet gambling sites accept Indonesian currency, so players in the country can enjoy a hassle-free live casino experience when they place wagers using IDR.
