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.

By the late 17th century, the great Spanish towns of the Caribbean had begun to prosper and Spain also began to make a slow, fitful recovery, but remained poorly defended militarily because of Spain's problems and so were sometimes easy prey for pirates and privateers. The English presence continued to expand in the Caribbean as England itself was rising toward great power status in Europe. Captured from Spain in 1655, the island of Jamaica had been taken over by England and its chief settlement of Port Royal had become a new English buccaneer haven in the midst of the Spanish Empire. Jamaica was slowly transformed, along with Saint Kitts, into the heart of the English presence in the Caribbean. At the same time the French Lesser Antilles colonies of Guadeloupe and Martinique remained the main centers of French power in the Caribbean, as well as among the richest French possessions because of their increasingly profitable sugar plantations. The French also maintained privateering strongholds around western Hispaniola, at their traditional pirate port of Tortuga (Tortuga (Haiti)), and their Hispaniolan capital of Petit-Goâve. The French further expanded their settlements on the western half of Hispaniola and founded Léogâne and Port-de-Paix, even as sugar plantations became the primary industry for the French colonies of the Caribbean. - 1799 12 January The generals of the colony - Toussaint, André Rigaud, Bauvais, and Laplume - met in Port-au-Prince and named Toussaint the lead commander.
