Yes but only for modern currency ! Besides that, it means money or coins, and it comes from the medieval deniers struck by Bans, a nobiliar title or rather function:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ban_%28title%29

The coin in question certainly does not seem to be the common slavonian (and later copied by Hungarian Kings) type. Also the word itself was not used on those coins.

For what it's worth, the second coin looks similar to other issues by Djurdj Vukovic, Despot of Raska 1427-1456 (Raska included parts of modern day Serbia, Kosovo and Montenegro during that period). It looks like a type 9, according to Jovanovic.

After looking at this coin again, I'm almost sure that's what it is. I was able to get hold of one myself today. Interestingly, this ruler organized the Serbian defence of Belgrade against the army of Mehmet II, after Constantinople fell.
