Here's a nice example of a region, now known as the Czech Republic, that was known as Bohemia and Moravia during World War II while under the protection of Nazi Germany. This area, where many German speaking people lived, became the catalyst for alarm when Third Reich (Nazi) Germany decided their need for "lebensraum" [living space] meant they should occupy the western section of Czechoslovakia to protect the Germans living there. Another aspect of this was the Nazification of Austria and the occupation of Poland, all preliminary to the beginning of WWII.
In a center there is element of coat of arms of The Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia (coat of arms of Czech): crowned lion rampant to the left. Semicircular inscriptions – in German language: BÖHMEN UND MÄHREN (above) and on Czech: ČECHY A MORAVA. Lettering: BÖHMEN UND MÄHREN, ČECHY A MORAVA
Translation: Bohemia and Moravia (German and Czech); OB. Engraver: Jaroslav Eder. Rx: Engraver: Otakar Španiel; Minted in Lysá nad Labem in a metal furniture factory. Minted from 1941 to 1944 with 104.8 M minted over the four years of production.
