Description:

The Serbian Dinar is the official currency of Serbia. Today the Serbian currency is available in 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 Para coins as well as 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 Dinar notes. 2000 and 5000 Dinar notes are also available but rarely used. 

The subunit of the Serbian Dinar, the Para, comes from Turkish silver coins of the same name. 'Para' means 'money' or 'coin' which was a phrase used in the days of the Ottoman Empire.

Origin:

The earliest use of the Dinar dates back to 1214. After the withdrawal of the last Ottoman Garrisons in 1867, Prince Milos Obrenivic ordered that a Serbian national currency be minted. In 1868 the first bronze coins were introduced, followed by silver in 1875, and gold in 1879. The first notes were introduced in 1876.
