ABC WEDNESDAY--"F" is for "Five hundred"



Jovan Cvijić was a Serbian geographer, president of the Serbian Royal Academy of Sciences, and rector of the University of Belgrade. He was a world-renowned scientist, and considered the founder of geography in Serbia, having started his scientific career as a geographer and geologist.

And now he's on the 500 dinar note, worth as I type, around $7.00.

See other F's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Serbian currency is much more interesting than the EU's (or the US's, for that matter).

Yes, interesting to read. Thanks for sharing.

Fascinating. I would think only politicians get on currency - they're the ones with all the money!

Thanks for the link. And yes, those guys were good and played for free! Joni Mitchell rocks!

I've never understood how world finance works, so I am always confused about the worth of paper in any country!

I think it looks more like a American movie ticket than money. So interesting the currancy in each country.

I like the graphics on the note. They are so much more interesting than our US money.
