Czech Koruna

Czech koruna currency:

Since 1993 the koruna is the official currency of Czech Republic and it is subdivided into 100 haleru. The symbol for the Koruna is Kč. The Czech koruna was introduced in 1993 and it replaced the Czechoslovak koruna after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the Czechoslovak Koruna was split into the Slovak Koruna and the Czech Koruna. The Czech Republic had planned to replace the Koruna with the Euro in 2010, however strong internal opposition has indefinitely delayed the move.

Coins were introduced in 1993 in the denominations of 10, 20 and 50 haleru, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 koruna. On 31 October 2003, the 10 and 20 haleru coins were withdrawn from circulation. On 31 August 2008, 50 haleru coins were taken out of circulation. Presently, the coins in circulation are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 Kč. On 8 February 1993, its first series of Czech notes issued consisted of Czechoslovak notes with adhesive stamps affixed to them. Overstamping was done in the case of only the denominations of 100,500 and 1000 korunas and the currency with lower denominations were in circulation without remaining changed during the phase of transition. A newly designed series of banknotes were introduced later in 1993 in the denominations 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1,000 and 5,000 korun. 2000 korun notes were introduced in 1996. Presently,  the notes in circulation are of the denominations 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 Kč, 5000 Kč, but 5000 Kč is rarely used.
