COIN KONVERTIBILNA MARKA — WHERE & WHEN (coins catalog: by names & emitents)
  1. REPUBLIC OF BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA (1998-...): konvertibilna marka = 100 fening

Convertible mark (Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian "Konvertibilna marka") — currency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, divided into 100 fening.
The Bosnian national currency was introduced in 1998 instead of the local dinar.
Coins of Bosnia and Herzegovina were issued in the format of 1, 2 and 5 konvertibilna marka for circulating, as well as relatively few types of non-circulating coins. The issue was carried out at the Royal Mint (Great Britain).
The first konvertibilna marka in the form of anniversary/commemorative coins date from 1998, while for the circulation date from 2000.
Bosnian coins are named by analogy with the already historical German mark and pfennig. At the time of the monetary reform, the introduced Bosnian konvertibilna marka was equated to the German currency in a ratio of 1:1. After the introduction of the euro, the fixed exchange rate is maintained — 1.95583:1 (that is, at the exchange rate of the German mark to the euro).
