The Fiume Krone (Italian: corona Fiumana, abbreviated Cor. or FIUK) was introduced in the Free State of Fiume on 18 April 1919 by the stamping the previous Austro-Hungarian krone notes by the Italian National Council of Fiume who effectively exercised power in the City. After the Dannunzian occupation in September 1919, a new series of notes were stamped on behalf of the Istituto di credito del Consiglio Nazionale with a decree dated 6 October 1919. The Fiume Krone was the official currency of the City of Fiume up to 26 September 1920 when, by the decree of the general Amantea commander of the Italian troops in Fiume, the Italian lira was introduced as the new official currency. The currency continued to circulate until the annexation of the city to Italy in February 1924. The royal decree n 235 of the 24th February 1924 set the final conversion date on April the 30th 1924 at 0.40 Italian lira for one Corona Fiumana.
