The Coinage of Dubrovnik

 

Ragusa A maritime merchant city-state that emerged from the Byzantine realm, Dubrovnik (Ragusa) became over the centuries a specific cultural combination of old Roman roots, a predominantly South Slavic population, the Catholic religion, and many Serbian traditions and language. During the centuries of Turkish occupation,it remained an important harbor of Serbian literacy, science and historiography - right until it was extinguished by Napoleon, in 1808.

With a span of over 500 years, the Dubrovnik coinage series is remarkable, like the Republic itself. Given here is a representative subset of the money that existed in the 15-18th centuries.
