GFD uses one code, and refers to Union Latine lira, Union Latine franc, etc. It makes sense to me that it's just one currency, but I'd rather have one name for it. The best I can think of is "Latin Union currency" ::::Unless the idea sounds bad to you, I'm thinking of creating a page for Latin Union currency which links to Latin Union and mentions how the currencies had different names and patterns, but were interchangeable and thus really one currency. Then, I'll link to the page from "Latin Union lira", "Latin Union franc", etc. with a reference on the "Italian lira", "French franc", etc. pages. Then, we can use "Latin Union lira" or LU whatever in our boxes. Sound reasonable?

It was "koruna" on the Hungarian coins. I see (on the web) that the banknotes said "krone", I just found that odd, and will mention it in the updated article, whenever I update it.
