The official currency in Serbia is the Serbian Dinar -. The exchange rate is
around 60 dinars for 1 dollar. One dinar contains 100 paras (a para to a dinar
is like a cent to a dollar)
Unlike the dollar bills, which are all same in size regardless of their value,
Serbian dinar bills differ in size - the greater the value of the bill, the greater
its size.
The Serbian currency comes in the following denominations:

      •   Bills: 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 5000 dinars
      •   Coins: 50 paras, 1 dinar, 2 dinars, 5 dinars, 10 dinars, and 20 dinars
