Quote from: coffeetime on March 26, 2011, 12:01:34 AMInotice the difference in the Cyrillic script used for the word "dinara" on the 10 and 50 dinar denominations. Has a different font been used for each, or is it simply that one legend appears in upper case, whilst the other is in lower case?

Quote from: coffeetime on March 25, 2011, 11:55:26 PMThe first and only coins to bear the portrait of King Peter II were issued in 1938: the 10, 20 and 50 dinar coins. Frano Menegelo Dincic designed both obverse and reverse of the coins. They are unusual in that the King faces to the left on the 20 dinar obverse but to the right on the other two coins. The legends on the 20 dinar piece are in the Latin alphabet but in Cyrillic on the other denominations.
