By mid-1931 the international gold standard system was beginning to deteriorate rapidly with one European country after the other having to suspend the convertibility of its currency. Yet at this exact time the Kingdom of Yugoslavia decided to introduce the same monetary system by legally binding its currency, the Dinar, to gold. Lasting only slightly over 100 days, the gold standard in Yugoslavia did not survive long and was already suspended in October of the same year. The question as to why Yugoslav authorities decided to adopt gold standard in the very moment when it was already collapsing all over Europe is at the core of this thesis. After briefly outlining the development of the Gold standard in the interwar period and explaining the key tendencies of Yugoslav monetary policy, this thesis will discuss possible reasons behind the legal stabilization of dinar. Relying on the 3I framework and using process tracing as main methodology, I will argue that this decision was primeraly to be seen as an outcome of economic and even more political circumstances, which have postponed previous attempts to legally stabilize the Yugoslav currency
