pis bolong

  • "Chinese money, known generally as Uang Kepeng in Indonesian, or as Pis Bolong in Balinese, is known through the ancient Lontar records to have circulated as a medium of exchange since at least 900 AD, and perhaps much longer. Throughout this time, Uang Kepeng touched on all aspects of Balinese life: cultural, religious, social, political and economic. Today, Uang Kepeng is used only for ceremonial purposes, while the economic aspects have withered away with the rise of a united Indonesia."
