King Stefan Dragutin (1276-1282)


"Banner" dinar. Obv.: King receiving banner from St. Stephen, legend: STEFAN REX S STEFAN; Rev.: Christ enthroned, holding Book of Gospels, IC - XC

HISTORICAL NOTES: After the 1282 abdication in favor of his younger brother Milutin, Dragutin remained in charge of Northern Serbia (including Belgrade), and continued to issue money until his death in 1316. The fact that only some of it continued to bear the royal title could be related to the changing relationship between the two brothers.

NUMISMATIC NOTES: The patron saint of the Nemanjic crown, St. Stephen, replaces the Venetian St. Mark on the Serbian dinars.
