Quote from: Hardy Strong on December 04, 2009, 04:12:56 PMFormer Yugoslavia has a fascinating history, and fortunately some attractive coinages have arisen from the ashes. My own favourite is the Croatian coinage, followed by the defunct Slovenian currency. Macedonia and especially Serbia have attractive designs. I sometimes wonder whether Milosevic was a secret coin collector and started the wars with a numismatic purpose in mind. Bosnia's coins are very boring, and Montenegro and "Kosovo" have decided to use the euro.

Quote from: chrisild on December 06, 2009, 01:16:40 AMInteresting story, and good photos, thanks! As for the currency in Montenegro, I think the split came a little earlier. In November 1999 Montenegro unilaterally introduced the euro (and in the first phase used DM cash) along with the dinar. A year later (Nov 2000) the dinar was phased out ...The Tesla coin confused me first: Huh, mine looks a little different? Then I noticed that for the Yugoslavian 1996 coin and the Serbian 2006 coin they used pretty much the same portrait. Christian
