From 1993 onwards, Bosnia began issuing collector coins. They were denominated in now defunct Bosnian dinars.

The obverse showed the bridge at Mostar, which had been destroyed by tank fire in 1993.

These collector coins were produced by the Pobjoy Mint, based in England.

Later collector coins "from" Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Konvertibilna Marka, show the same design. See here for example.

That piece is dated 1998; at that time the reconstruction of the bridge had already begun (completed in 2004). Oddly enough, while the regular coins  have the country name in Latin and Cyrillic characters, those collector coins are "Latin only".
