A special part is the money of our new century states: the money of the Principality and Kingdom of Serbia, Principality and Kingdom of Montenegro; Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1918–1941), Serbia under occupation (1941–1944) and Yugoslavia (DFY, FPRY and SFRY). The exhibition also includes money from European, Asian, African, North American and South American countries from the 19th to the end of the 20th century.
In a chronological sense, the exhibited numismatic material covers the period from the 5th century BC. e. until the beginning of the seventies of the last century, and with accompanying, chronologically younger, illustrative type numismatic material, until the beginning of the XXI century. The exhibits were partly acquired through purchases and gifts, as in the case of finds of Greek, Roman, medieval and modern coins, while a significant part arrived in the Numismatic Collection through archaeological excavations carried out by the National Museum Kraljevo, the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments in Kraljevo and the Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments of Serbia – Belgrade.
