gotun = IDR 5*
jigo = IDR 25*
gocap = IDR 50*
cepe = IDR 100^
pego = IDR 150*
nope = IDR 200^
gope = IDR 500
seceng = IDR 1,000
noceng = IDR 2,000
goceng = IDR 5,000
ceban = IDR 10,000
noban = IDR 20,000
goban = IDR 50,000
cetiaw = IDR 1 million

This is the YouTube channel of Tawalah Tawalah, a group of Betawi comedians spread around Jakarta, Depok, Bekasi (both in West Java) and Tangerang (Banten). They also have an Instagram account @tawalahtawalah (link). Their videos provide subtitles (also in Betawi), which might be useful if you're learning Betawi.
Here are some of their videos.
