  50 Macedonian denar note

Macedonia is neither a member of the European Union nor do they have the Euro as currency. The official currency is the Macedonian denar (MKD). It is subdivided into 100 deni.

Banknotes come in 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 5000 denari. Coins were introduced in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 50 denari as well as 50 deni.

Accommodation prices are often quoted in Euro and it is quite usual to pay them in Euro. Macedonians are quite used to the Euro as many of them work in countries of the Euro zone.

The reverse side of the 50 Macedonian denar note shows a picture of Saint Archangel Gavril, which can be seen as a fresco in the Church of St. Georgi in the village of Kurbinovo near the Prespa Lake.

We visited this church during a bus tour of the 7th VT Euomeet.
