YUM

ISO 4217 code for the Yugoslav new dinar. It was introduced in 1994 following a period of hyperinflation and pegged to the Deutsche mark at par. It was used in Montenegro until 2000; it was replaced by the mark, which was later replaced by the euro; Serbia continued to use the new dinar until 2003, when Yugoslavia officially split into Serbia and Montenegro. At that time, it was replaced by the Serbian dinar at a 1:1 ratio.
