Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, 1 koruna , ND (1939). The actual note, a Republic of Czechoslovakia 1 koruna note (dated 1938), was printed but never issued. The series was intended for the Czech army. During the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, the unissued 1938 notes were circulated from February till May 1940, with an oval stamp on the face identifying the currency as issued by the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

Money Coin Icon.svg

This work depicts Czech legal tender, which is not subject to copyright protection as it is an official work and there is public interest in its exclusion from copyright protection. This does not necessarily apply on such coins which are not official works (privately issued commemorative coins etc.).

The Act No. 136/2011 Coll. and the decree of the Czech National Bank No. 274/2011 Coll.(engl. version) define the terms and conditions under which it is possible to reproduce money:

For intangible reproductions of banknotes, it is required that their resolution does not exceed 72 dots per inch and they are marked with the word “Specimen” printed diagonally in an opaque colour and in a layer that cannot be separated from the image of the banknote, with the length of the word being at least 75% of the longer side of the banknote and the height being at least 15% of the shorter side of the banknote (or with another word of the same dimensions and similar meaning). Intangible or nonmetallic images of coins may always be produced.

  • Size limitations on the reproduction of banknote images are determined by the Czech National Bank (CNB), established in 1993. The CNB was preceded by the State Bank of Czechoslovakia (1950–92), the National Bank of Czechoslovakia (1926–50), and the Banking Office of the Ministry of Finance (1919–26). The present image is of an obsolete banknote issued by the National Bank of Czechoslovakia (1926–50), and therefore the size restrictions for notes issued by the CNB do not apply.
This file, either completely or in part, represents a depiction of a unit of currency. Even though this file is in the public domain or otherwise not copyrighted, its use may be restricted by other legal provisions outside of copyright law.
