The Yugoslavian Dinar and Exchange Rates

A while back, we looked at Exchange Rates.  Today I'm looking at the Yugoslavian Dinar, and because of that, understanding exchange rates is important.

Until 1918, the dinar was the currency of Serbia.  It then became the currency of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, circulating alongside the krone in Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, with 1 dinar = 4 kronen.  The first coins and banknotes bearing the name of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes were issued in 1920, until which time Serbian coins and banknotes circulated.  In 1929, the name of the country changed to Yugoslavia and this was reflected on the currency.

In my campaign, I've been planning on using an exchange rate of about $4.8/$5 for each £1 (based on info found in Guttags Foreign Currency and Exchange Guide - screen shots below for convenience).

Based on this information,  $4.8 for each £1 (I'm rounding it to $5 = £1 for simplicity),  
5дин is worth about $1, so 25дин is worth about £1

In my quest to bring the Horror on the Orient Express campaign to life, heres Printable Yugoslavian/Serbian Dinars.
