The Czech koruna (or crown) (sign: Kč; code: CZK) was adopted as the official currency of the Czech Republic after the country gained its independence from Russia in 1993. The koruna is one of the nine currencies of the European Union. The Czech Republic is one of the few EU members to still use it's own currency rather than the euro. The country is legally bound to adopt the euro currency in the future, but it is not currently bound to do this by a set deadline. One crown consists of 100 hellers (abbreviated as "h"), but hellers are no longer in circulation and the smallest unit of physical tender is 1 Kč. However, for FX and pricing goods internationally, hellers are still used and then rounded to the nearest koruna at checkout.
