The koruna (sign: Kč; code: CZK) is the currency of the Czech Republic since 1993, and in English it is sometimes referred to as Czech crown. The koruna is one of European Union's 11 currencies, and the Czech Republic is legally bound to adopt the euro currency in the future. The official name in Czech is koruna česká (plural koruny české, though the zero-grade genitive plural form korun českých is used on banknotes and coins of value 5 Kč or higher). The ISO 4217 code is CZK and the local acronym is Kč, which is placed after the numeric value (e.g., "50 Kč") or sometimes before it (as is seen on the 10-koruna coin). One koruna equals 100 haléřů (abbreviated as "h", singular: haléř, nominative plural: haléře, genitive plural: haléřů – used with numbers higher or equal to 5 – e.g. 3 haléře, 8 haléřů), but haléře have been withdrawn, and the smallest unit of physical currency is 1 Kč.
The coin, manufactured to celebrate 100 years of Czech Koruna as an official currency. 133 kg of the pure gold with value of 100.000.000 Kc (4 million Euro). Presented on exhibition in Prague. #prague #czechkoruna #gold #currency
Leg 2 of Leave; Prague. No it’s not a picture of Prague but I’m visiting places with four different currencies on this trip. It’s not super ballin in this pic; about $250-$300 USD in each currency. More decent pics of Prague to follow. #prague #travel #currency #euro #czechkoruna #dirham #swissfrancs
