what you're looking for is probably the hellar.
but...which hellar you want is something to consider.
say the current exchange rate is 26 crowns to the
1 crown = approx 3.8 cents
1/2 crown (50 hellar) = approx 1.9 cents
this is still what's in use today.
before jan 1.2004 or thereabouts, we also used
1/5 crown (20 hellar) = approx .8 of a cent
1/10 crown (10 hellar) = approx .4 of a cent
i would suggest using the 1 crown piece simply because
if you use anything smaller, it all looks and feels
like plastic monopoly money.
the czech republic (bohemia and moravia) use the same
currency. if there's anything much much older than
that, it would be expensive to get a hold of i would
i've got a ton of coins over here (duh...since i live
here) but someone who's travelled here must have some
they took home...?
