Indonesia announces the faces of its new series

The Jakarta Post has an article about the next Indonesian banknote series to be issued later this year by the Bank Indonesia (although that is hard to believe considering earlier reports that a new series won't be issued until 2020). President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has decided the portraits of 12 national heroes will feature on the new series. The new notes will also be issued in the name of "Negara Kesatuan Republik Indonesia" (The Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia) instead of the "Bank Indonesia".

The following 12 people will be honored on the new banknotes:

The exact issue date is not known as far as I could tell but apparently there are no plans for a redenomination.

Update 16-12-2016: the Jakarta Globe reports that the new notes will enter circulation from 19 December 2016.
