HISTORICAL NOTES: This period saw new heights in democratic institutions and economic prosperity, and after the triumphant end to the Balkan and First World Wars, led to Serbia's pinnacle in 1918 - when the new state, Yugoslavia, was built around it.


NUMISMATIC NOTES: The 5 dinar coin commemorates, on its 100th anniversary, the beginning of the First Serbian insurrection against Turkish rule (1804), led by Peter's grandfather Karadjordje - the beginning of modern Serbian statehood.
