In the year 2000 Macedonia issued a special 1 denar coin.

It was a circulation coin that commemorated 2000 years of Christianity.


The obverse featured a cross from the St. George monastery of Kavadarci.

The reverse featured the logo of the National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia.

The logo is a representation of an ancient copper Byzantine coin.


Under communism, coins with Christian or religious themes were usually not permitted.

Nowadays, many Slav countries issue coins with religious themes.
