Indonesia, 50,000 Rupiah, issued in 1993. This bank note was issued to commemorate 25 years of Indonesian development, i.e., the success of the first long-term 25-year development period, beginning in 1969 and ending in 1994. Front: President Soeharto (resigned in 1988) as the Father of Indonesian Development with the representation of various sectoral developments (culture, agriculture, infrastructure, education and chemical industry) in the background. Back: Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and a Garuda Indonesia Boeing 747-400 airplane taking off, illustrating that the Indonesian development is entering the process of taking off.

_______

A very small number of bank notes exists with a XXV prefix, which is supposedly a replacement prefix.

The OVDs on a large number of notes were poorly manufactured—such OVDs exhibit numerous tiny holes in the silver foil and along the foil edge.

_______

Indonesia, 100,000 Rupiah, issued in 1999. The bank note was one of the key measures for the preparation for the "millennium bug." The Bank of Indonesia wanted to accumulate a stock of bank notes in the event the computer systems crashed. 500 million notes were printed. Front: Indonesia's founding president Soekarno and vice-president Mohammad Hatta. Soekarno's portrait, first appearing on Indonesian bank notes in 1950, was removed after Soeharto seized power in 1965 and was reintroduced on this note. The text from Indonesia's 1945 independence proclamation in the center. Back: The House of Representatives building.

_______

Except for serial number prefixes, there are no visible differences between the NPA-printed and NPW-printed notes.
