Description

The złoty is the official currency of Poland. The name is derived from the Polish adjective “golden”. The official currency symbol: zł. The złoty (golden) in Poland dated back to the midden ages, from the 14th and 15th centuries when the name was used for all foreign gold coins used in Poland. In 1496, the Sejm (Sejm of the Republic of Poland) approved creating a national currency known as the first złoty.  A second złoty was introduced in 1924, replacing the marka (currency of the Kingdom of Poland and the Republic of Poland between 1917 and 1924). In 1939, the government introduced banknotes in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 złoty. After German established the General Government and the Communist Poland periods, a third złoty (PLZ) was introduced, replacing all the notes issued before 1948; from there, the banknotes issued were a stable version. The banknotes issued in these third series were redenominated at a rate of 10,000 PLZ to a 1 PLN (new złoty), and all the legal tenders previously emitted as PLZ denominations were exchangeable into the PLN until the date of each value’s withdrawal. After 31 December 2010. Currently are circulating banknotes in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 złoty.

The 20 złotych commemorative note front design features an open-book which contains the crowned White Eagle (Emblem of the Polish Republic) and the portrait of Jan Długosz (1415 – 1480), a Polish priest who is considered Poland’s first historian and one of the most distinguished Medieval historians. The reverse of the note presents an illustration of the Wawel Cathedral and the stylized design of Jan Długosz’s coat of arms – Wieniawa (a crowned lion that supports a sword, on a crowned armour which has a shield underneath that, contains an ox’s head with a nose ring). The lettering of the note is presented in the Polish language. This note is part of the 2015 commemorative series ‘’600th Anniversary of the Birth of Jan Długosz’’.
