Currency Information on Bosnian Mark BAM — Bosnia and Herzegovina konvertibilna marka – KM
“Konvertibilna marka” translates into convertible mark, a reference to the German mark, to which the maraka was pegged when it was first released, at a ratio of 1:1. Since the German mark was replaced by the Euro in 2002, the marka now has the same fixed exchange rate to the Euro as the German mark does.
Maraka are divisible into 100 fenings, or feninga. Maraka currency is available in the coin denominations of 5, 10, 20 and 50 feninga and 1, 2, 5, maraka, with banknotes available in 10, 20, 50, 100 and 20 maraka.
A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this website when I was buying a classic car from overseas, naturally I wanted to get the best exchange rate possible in order to help cover shipping and import taxes. After a quick browse of the website it became clear an FX broker was my best option so I used the comparison table to compare my shortlist of candidates and requested some quotes. I was contacted nearly straight away and after playing two of the brokers off for a little while I secured a great rate. I literally saved thousands as I was initially going to use my bank just for the 'security' factor like i'm sure a lot of others do but after a quick comparison I realised all the brokers are authorised by the FCA just like the banks so my money was going to be safe regardless. The money I saved on the transfer paid for the shipping and import taxes which was massive boost and I couldn't be happier with the service. I would recommend this website to anyone looking at buying property, emigrating or making payments overseas as you can save some serious money! All the Best,
