HALÉŘ (plural: haléře / haléřů) as coin name. In medieval Europe, for several centuries, alongside the denar and the pfennig, the heller coin was extremely popular. As of the beginning of the 21st century, this coin ceased to exist, but its descendants — the Slovak halier and the Czech haléř — continued to be issued.
That is, haléř is a coin that got its name from heller as its ancient prototype (the spelling of the term "heller" in Czech).
