I use this currency converter. With the help of the graphs, you can keep the trend in mind if you can't buy the currency immediately.

Yes, I like that one also. Usually not too much interest in the coins at the JA. perhaps that will fetch a good price though.

I tried a currency converter but as you can see from my post it is hopelessly messed up or I messed it up somehow.
Peter's link didn't work for me but I will try again.

Realised: 11.5 million rupiah (about $1280)

An octagonal variant of the 1993 500 rupiah fetched 11 million against the 1.6 million estimate.

The post card is one of a series sold as booklets. They are nice, but not always historically correct, though this one is: the half gulden 1898 was indeed a NEI coin, though it is usually listed as Dutch.

I find the written text more amazing: My sweet Ben, here is the ƒ100 000. When will you come, we are missing you badly. Nice that you have met Nelly. Dolly.

The amount of ƒ100 000 is very substantial in 1909. A rough calculation would put it at around €1 million today. Being able to transfer it (in gold coins?) means there is more where it came from. Transferring it casually, almost jokingly, means the sender was very rich indeed. One wonders...
