NBS Puts in Circulation New 2000 Dinar Banknote and Modified 500 and 1000 Dinar Banknotes
On 30 December 2011, the NBS will put in circulation the new 2000 dinar banknote featuring on its front the portrait of Milutin Milanković, a world-renowned Serbian scientist. Its back shows the figure of Milutin Milanković and the stylised presentation of his scientific achievements.
Modified banknotes of 500 and 1000 dinars will also be introduced on the same occasion. While their front remains the same, the back contains the Great Coat-of-Arms of the Republic of Serbia in new design, in accordance with the Decree on Establishing the Original Great and Small Coat-of-Arms, Flag and National Anthem of the Republic of Serbia (RS Official Gazette, No 85 of 15 November 2010). The year of issue has also been changed (’2011’).
The modified 500 dinar banknote will be in parallel circulation with the same banknote of 2004 and 2007 issues, while the 1000 banknote will be in parallel circulation with the same banknote of 2003 and 2006 issues.
By placing in circulation 500, 1000 and 2000 banknotes, the NBS will ensure the adequate volume, quality and denomination structure of circulating banknotes required for unimpeded cash operations.
