Great coin.

I realized years later that I drove through many of the small towns that once had Roman "Dalmatian" mines when I was stationed in Bosnia, but sadly I didn't take pictures at the time.  I remember though how hilly or mountainous they were. 

Often the term for silver - srebro - still remains in the current name.  For example the unfortunate Srebrenica, but also Srebrenik in Tuzla Canton.

Were you there with the CAF?

I was Deputy Head of Mission at the Embassy (when we had one there) for three years, so I overlapped with eight CAF rotos.
