MONEY, MONEY!!!…. USA vs Serbia

24 Feb

Money is a subject we all enjoy!!! Most of us suffer from too little of it and others can’t get enough of it! Serbia has a very favorable exchange rate for Americans, Brits, Canadians, Aussies etc…. I have gotten a lot of questions about the currency that is used in Serbia. Here is a breakdown of Serbian currency compared to American currency. The figures are based on a current exchange rates for 02-24-12….



 Serbia uses the DINAR or RSD (Republic of Serbia DINAR)… pronounced like (DEENER). The USA uses the DOLLAR. Currently one US dollar = 81dinars.  The Dinar is available in the following coin currency……Here is a video that I did that shows the 1RSD to the 100 Dinar note.

  1.  1 RSD coin= $0.01 USD
  2.  2 RSD coin= $0.02 USD
  3.  5 RSD coin= $0.06 USD
  4. 10RSD coin= $0.12 USD
  5. 20RSD coin= $0.24 USD

USA currency has a name for each. The small copper $0.01 is called a PENNY, the $0.05 cent is called a NICKEL, the $0.10 cent is called a DIME and the $0.25 cent is called a QUARTER.



As you can see there is a bill for the 10 dinar and 20 dinar also. Here is a video that shows all the bills from 200 Dinar to 5000 Dinar The exchange rate is broken down like this…..

  1.    10RSD= $0.12 USD
  2.    20RSD= $0.24 USD
  3.    50 RSD=$0.61 USD
  4.   100RSD=$1.22 USD
  5.   200RSD=$2.45 USD
  6.   500RSD=$5.13 USD
  7. 1000RSD=$12.26USD
  8. 5000RSD=$61.36USD

The picture of American currency shows the $2 bill that is no longer in production but can still be used in any transaction. I have always liked the USA money because it is uniform in shape and color and not too flashy and gaudy! Serbian money has watermarks and different sizes for the bills. It would be much easier to be blind in Serbia!!! 🙂

    Hey Charles! I really love your blog and the appreciation you show for the Serbian people. My father is from Serbia, in fact his town is in the Banat region as well. Thank you for making this blog (and videos) and giving others another perspective of Serbia than the one we hear in the media. I was born and raised in America (NY) and as a young child I watched the bombings in 1999 and I would hear terrible things about Serbia on T.V, but my father was always there to give me a different perspective. I am a proud American, as well as a proud Serbian! I have a lot of family there and I am anxiously waiting to go visit them one day. Your blog brings back a lot of good memories for my dad too! Thanks again.

    You’re also missing the new 2000 RSD note that was introduced here. And actually, the $2 bill is still printed. However, it is the lowest in percentage that is printed. Fun facts about the $2 bill:

    And yes, money here is definitely better for the blind. 🙂

      Blind people don’t see so every note was same for them. It’s better because it’s harder to confuse two bills and pay 100 instead 10 for example.

    The portrait on the 100 RSD note looks to be that of Nikola Tesla. He was definitely one of the most brilliant inventors of all time. It is such a shame that he died almost penniless though. The man basically pioneered the practical conversion of mechanical energy into electricity. His AC based generator concept is still the fundamental principle in use to this very day, for both the production and distribution of electricity around the world.
