Autor: Svetlana Pantelić

Summary: Stefan Lazarević, though a liege of the Turkish, and subsequently Hungarian rulers, torn between the roles of a soldier and a sovereign, in a rather difficult historical times for his country, managed to provide economic and cultural development to his princedom, in particular to Belgrade. Monetary policy of that age in Serbia may be divided into three periods: 1. minting of coins bearing the inscriptions in Italian; 2. minting of the lightest, worst-quality official coins of Raška; 3. minting of beautiful and diverse, one-gram coins.
