Social media rumors of new Indonesia 200,000 Rupiah note a hoax

Images of Indonesia 200,000 Rupiah notes went viral recently on social media.

The note features a couple of polo riders on the front. This seems rather odd since traditionally rupiah notes usually feature at least one historical figure on the front.

It turns out that the viral image was indeed just a hoax, as clarified by Bank Indonesia, the country’s central bank.
