FWIW the English pages of the Czech National Bank site seem to use
koruna a lot more than crown with reference to the name of the
currency. Make of that what you will.
But as for sentences like 'A half-liter beer costs 90 Czech Koruna
($3.20) at a cafe in the Old Town', well, I'm all in favour of 'local
colour', but I don't think this kind of thing is necessarily the best
way of providing it. Still, OK in some contexts (e.g. tourist
literature), I guess.
And 'korunas' does sound very ungainly and unnecessary IMHO.
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that
you do it.
