“In 2018 Narodowy Bank Polski will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence with the issue of special anniversary coins and a collector banknote. The first of these is the commemorative circulation coin with the face value of 5 złoty, which will carry the inscription: “100th Anniversary of Regaining Independence by Poland”. The coin will be issued with a symbolic mintage of up to 38,424,000 pieces so that it will reach every Pole,” writes Prof. Adam Glapiński in the issue booklet.
The President of Narodowy Bank Polski emphasises: “The year 1918 was special for us. The dream of freedom became a reality. It would not have been possible if it had not been for the consistent activities of many generations of Poles, who with faith in the future fought in uprisings, nurtured Polish culture, and worked for the common good of the nation in order to achieve the desired goal. On 11 November 1918 everything changed. We opened a new chapter in the history of our nation. We began building a new Poland. One of the priorities of the newly-independent state was to have its own currency, and the Polish ZŁOTY was soon to become a tangible sign of this.”
“By issuing this coin, we express our deepest respect for all the great-hearted people who, by their attitude, contributed to the fact that today we enjoy a sovereign Republic. We Poles,” adds Prof. Adam Glapiński, the originator of the idea for the coin.
More information about the coin can be found in the issue booklet. The coins are available in the NBP regional branches.
