Hello! 5 Years of Collecting Coins, Part-time Workers Buy Motorcycles in Cash


What comes to mind when you have coins or change? most people consider it unimportant, even just used to pay Mr. Ogah or parking attendant tips. But not for Musa Firuddin (47), thanks to his persistence in saving he was able to buy a Yamaha Vega Force motorcycle in cash.

This man who works as a casual laborer in the home furniture industry sets aside a small change every day. Musa collects change in Rp 1,000 and Rp 500 denominations for 5 years in a piggy bank.

“Since 2017 I was determined to buy a Vega Force motorbike, but I realized that I couldn’t buy it directly because of the family’s mediocre economic condition. The only way was for me to be diligent in saving every day. Sometimes it was only Rp. 1,000 or even only Rp. 500. But I believe that if I do it diligently, my wish will come true,” explained Musa in a statement received from Yamaha DDS 3 (Central Java – Yogyakarta), Thursday (25/8/2022).

Head of the Yamaha Mataram Sakti FSS Semarang Branch, Yudha, said that Musa came with three large piggy banks. He bought a unit of Yamaha Vega Force moped.

“We were surprised when Mr. Musa handed over 3 (three) piggy banks in quite large size while saying, silahkah is calculated, if it is not enough, I will add it in cash,” said Yudha, imitating Musa’s words.

If you look at the price of the Yamaha Vega Force, on the official Yamaha website, the motorcycle is sold starting at Rp. 17,395,000 (OTR Jakarta). Of course, these prices may differ from other regions.

The dealer said it took 1 hour to count all the money in Musa’s piggy bank. This fact is in accordance with the mandate of Law (UU) No. 7 of 2011 concerning Currency. Article 21 states that rupiah must be used in every transaction that has a payment purpose. Meanwhile, Article 23 stipulates that everyone is prohibited from refusing to receive rupiah.
