New coins from Serbia

On 16 June 2010, the NBS will release a 1-dinar coin (made of steel core), 2 and 5-dinar coins (made of copper, zinc and nickel alloy – Cu75 Zn24,5 Ni0,5) and 10 and 20-dinar coins (made of copper, zinc and nickel alloy – Cu70Zn18Ni12).
Apart from designation of “2010” as the minting year, other features of 1, 2, 5 and 10-dinar coins are unchanged. The 20-dinar coin also has “2010” as the minting year, but it now features the portrait of Georg Weifert on its front.
Coins of 1, 2, 5 and 10 dinars will be used in regular cash payment operations, whereas the 20-dinar coin will also serve for marking the 160th anniversary of birth of Georg Weifert, a Serbian industrialist and the National Bank’s long-standing Governor (1890–1902, 1912–1926).
