A Little History of Yugoslavia…..
When I got this banknote, I had no idea what year it was from and honestly, I did not know much about Yugoslavia. I was surprised to see that it used to be a country of Southeast Europe. After a little research, I learned that Yugoslavia’s Communist Party disbanded into 6 different countries in 1990 and eventually reformed our maps. This currency bill I had was released a year before the breakup and not surprisingly, their currency has reached the inflation (100,000 dinar) along with the country’s economic disruption and eventual collapse. The breakup of Yugoslavia and its history is definitely a fascinating part of world history and if you would like to read more about it, here are a few sources to look into –
