The dinar (plural: dinari) is the currency of Serbia. An earlier currency also called dinar was the currency of the Principality, then the Kingdom, of Serbia between 1868 and 1918. The autonomous province of Kosovo and Metohia used the Deutsche Mark between 1999 and 2002, when it adopted the euro. The current Serbian dinar is a continuation of the last Yugoslav dinar.
