Investopedia explains 'RSD (Serbian Dinar)'


The Serbian dinar dates back to 1214. The modern dinar showed up in 1868 in an attempt to remove the different foreign currencies in circulation and set up an independent monetary system. The Serbian dinar is the third modern dinar, and came into circulation in 2003, when it replaced the former dinar, the Yugoslav dinar, at par.
