Cechy a Morava
« on: June 24, 2010, 03:05:00 AM »
I thought this was a Czechoslovakia 20-Haleru coin but it says Cechy a Morava on it and the inscription is off and in 1941 there were no Czech 20-haleru as far as I know.  I am not familiar with this item.  Minted for a government in exile?

So where do I find this thing in the Krause?

Bohemia and Moravia, a German protectorate during WWII.  While the Sudetenland was absorbed into Germany, Bohemia was made a protectorate as was Slovakia.  Their coin and banknote issues run from 1939 on up to 1945.

Thanks!

So let me get this straight...the name on the coin is "Cechy a Morava" so I look it up under Bohemia...  ;D

Well, the German term "Böhmen" would have been the clue. ;D  The Czech word "Čechy" refers to what in English is called Bohemia; and the Czech term "Morava" is Moravia in English. By the way, while B&M was actually a protectorate, Slovakia was (formally) an independent country ...

BTW if you are interested in banknotes, Bohemia and Moravia issued very lovely banknotes:
