Palembang is one of the oldest cities in Indonesia.  It is located on the Musi river on the island of Sumatra.  The Sultanate of Palembang was established in the early 17th century by Javanese nobles fleeing from dynastic intrigues after the collapse of the Sultanate of Demak.  It soon became the one of the greatest agricultural and trade centers in the Malay area.  This undated tin Pitis was issued by the Sultanate of Palembang between 1710 and 1778.  The uniface coin has crude Malay-Arabic inscriptions around a center hole.
