Bohemian coinage has four main periods: period of denarius (denár; ca 950  1300), with short interperiod of bracteatus (brakeát), further, period of Grosch (groš; 1300  1520), period of Thaler (tolar; 1520  1889) and finally, period of crown (Krona, 1889  today). In the first period, denarius was the main coin, in the second period, it was Grosch of Prague (subdivided into 12 coins; peníz). During the reign of Jean de Luxembourg, golden ducatus (dukát) was introduced. In the third period, several kinds of currency were coined: Thaler, Halbthaler (1/2), Viertelthaler (1/2), Grosch, Kreuzern, Halbkreuzern etc, till crown reform in 1892.
Thaler (tolar) was a silver coin, coined by House of Schlick since 1519 in Joachimsthal (obverse  St. Joachim, reverse  royal Czech lion), its weight was 1 lot (15 g). Commonly, 1 Thaler = 30 Groschen or 1.5 Golden (3 crowns). This coin gave name to numerous European coinages.
Golden (fr. Florin) – originaly golden coin from Firenze since 1252. These coins were substituted by ducatii. Golden became silver standardised and spread in German speaking countreis. 1 Gulden = 60 Kreuzern = 240 Pfennig.
In 1705, in the frame of new Bohemian Way, the currency reform was conducted. It was focused on unification and simplification of different kinds of coins. It was called Konventionwährung  KW; the rate of gold to silver was set to 1:14, the gold was represented by royal ducatus, silver by Thaler.
One Golden (fl) of KW had 60 Kreuzern (kr). The coins were 2 kr, 10 kr, 30 kr and 60 kr (1 fl).
Based on credit principle, since 1752, the first paper money appeared  so called Bankzetteln  5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 fl. After 1805, these were officially called in Bohemian Ti šejni (Die Kreditscheine).
In the year 1889, the crown currency was introduced (1 króna = 0.476 koltän). Króna (crown) its base, golden coins of 10, 20 and 100 K were coined, and silver coins 1, 2 and 5 K. Króna had 60 krojcärni (k) or 120 helärni (h) made of nickelbronze alloy. This currency is used till today. The actual average monthly salary in Bohemia is 210 króni (or 100 koltni), whereas bread of 2 lb weight costs 25 helärni.
If Bohemian Kingdom enters one day the EF, the currency reform should result in 1 króna (K) = 20 krojcärni (k) = 240 helärni.
