The dinar (Serbian: динар) was the currency in Republic of Serbian Krajina between 1992 and 1994.

History[edit]

There were three distinct dinars. The first was introduced in July 1992 in parallel with the new Yugoslav dinar of that year, to which it was equal. The second dinar replaced the first at a rate of 1 million to one on October 1, 1993, whilst the third replaced the second at a rate of 1 billion (109) to one on January 1, 1994. In 1995, Croatia took control of the region and the Croatian kuna became the currency. No coins were issued for any of the three dinara.

Banknotes[edit]

In 1991, three uniface war loan certificates denominated in 10,000-, 20,000-, and 50,000-динара (dinara) were prepared, but never issued. Although these resemble banknotes, they are not banknotes.[1] These were followed, in 1992, by regular type notes for 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000 and 5000 dinars. Later in 1992, notes were issued by the Narodna Banka Republike Srpske Krajine (National Bank of Republic of Srpska Krajina) in denominations of 10,000 and 50,000 dinars. These were followed by notes for 100,000, 1 million, 5 million, 10 million, 20 million, 50 million, 100 million, 500 million, 1 billion, 5 billion and 10 billion dinars. When the second dinars was introduced later in 1993, notes were issued in denominations of 5000, 50,000, 100,000, 500,000, 5 million, 100 million, 500 million, 5 billion, 10 billion and 50 billion. In 1994, the third dinar was issued in denominations of 1000, 10,000, 500,000, 1 million and 10 million dinars.
