Serbia 2 Pare and 5, 10, and 20 Para  1883 to 1917
Serbia 2 Pare and 5, 10, and 20 Para 1883 to 1917

These coins from old Serbia were minted in copper-nickel, except the 2 pare which has the same pattern but is minted in bronze. They all have the famous double-headed eagle on the reverse side, a reminder of their roots in the Byzantine Empire. As Granda points out, the inscription is in Cyrillic letters.
