Following our article "A curious 1000 dinara Type 1990 banknote" published on January 4, 2020, we received some very interesting new information concerning the origin of this banknote. Here we publish our reader's email in full:

"Hello. I saw your article titled "A curious 1000 Dinara Type 1990 banknote" and wanted to share some information about these notes with the portrait of Tito.

First of all, these notes are more than likely not from 1990 because the governor's signature is that of Ksente Bogoev, who was governor of the National Bank of Yugoslavia from 1978 to 1981.

Secondly, these notes would not have been planned for a regular circulation issue - due insufficient security features for that time period. They have no watermark, no intaglio printing etc.

Thirdly, the National Bank of Serbia (successor to the National Bank of Yugoslavia) has officially denied that these notes were ever produced or even planned. Therefore, these notes should be regarded as a private issue.

I can send you the full response / statement by the National Bank on these notes, if that would help you. If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask. Regards, M. Živković".
