About the Polish Zloty

The Zloty is the legal currency in Poland, the abbreviation ISO 4217 is PLN, but the abbreviation used to mark prices is "zl". Each Zloty is divided into 100 groszy.

History of the currency of Poland

In the 14th and 15th centuries circulated in Poland various foreign currencies and were called all Zloty (meaning "golden"). In the 15th century, the first Polish official currency was coined, which was called grosz (as they are now called Zloty cents). And already in the 18th century the Zloty was established as the official currency of Poland.

Between 1850 and 1917 the official currency became the Russian Ruble because Poland (then known as the Congress Poland) was united from 1815 to the Russian Empire. With the arrival of the First World War Poland became part of the German Empire. So his currency changed again and became the German Mark, the official currency of Germany, between 1917 and 1924.

In 1924 the Zloty was introduced again as official currency. Since then there have been two revaluations: one in 1950 and another in 1995. In the last one a new zloty of 10,000 to 1 was issued and gave rise to the Zloty that we know today.

Polish Zloty notes and coins

The Polish Zloty current banknotes are 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 Zlotys. As of 2014, the Polish National Bank has renewed the design of the 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 Zloty banknotes. In addition, in 2017 they issued the 500 Zloty note for the first time, since this denomination had not existed before.

At the moment the two editions are legal. The old edition will be valid indefinitely.

The designs of the two series of notes are very similar and the characters and objects represented remain the same. On the reverse appear Polish Kings, from Miecislao I (first known prince of Poland of the 10th century) that appears on the 10 Zloty note, to John III Sobiesky, King of the 17th century that appears on the 500 Zloty note. Passing through Boleslao I of Poland (10th-11th century) on the 20 note, Casimir III The Great (14th century) in the 50, Vladislao II Jaguellon (14th-15th century) in the 100 and Segismundo I The Old on the 200 Zloty note.

On the reverse appear objects or images related to the characters of each ticket. In the 10 and 20 silver denarii used in the time of both Kings appear. In the 50's appears the white eagle of the royal seal of Casimir III. In the one of 100 appears the eagle of the tomb of Vladislao II. In the 200 there appears the eagle that is in the Chapel of Sigismund in the Cathedral of Wawel, in Krakow. And in the 500 Zlotys appears in the background the facade of the Wilanów Palace and the coat of arms of John III Sobiesky.
