Jubilee Money

On the territory of today's Montenegro coins were minted already in the 2nd century BC. Risan was the first town where Illyrian coins were minted. Roman and Byzantine money circulated in Prevalis. Later, medieval towns Bar, Ulcinj, Svač, Kotor and Budva continued to mint their own coins. In the 13th century, town Mojkovac minted "grossi de Brescoa." Finally, in the 14th century, the family Balšić minted eleven types of coins.

History of minting in Montenegro continued in 1851, following the meeting of Njegoš and banker Carl Rothschild. Njegoš started preparations for the official currency perun, which is named after the "supreme god" old Slavs. Unfortunately, the project failed, and the only remaining evidence of their plans is the imprint of perun in red wax.
