New Commemorative 20-Zloty Note

16 Dec 2021  Thu

The National Bank of Poland released a legal tender 20-zloty commemorative banknote honoring its late president Lech Kaczynski on 9th Nov.

The face of the note has a large facing bust of Lech Kaczynski, president of Poland from 2005 until his 2010 death in a controversial plane crash on an attempted landing in the Russian city of Smolensk. To his left is a reproduction of his handwritten words “Being a Pole has value”.

An image of the back is an image of the Warsaw Rising Museum, which was created with the support of Kaczynski when he was mayor of Warsaw, and the cranes of the Gdansk Shipyard that was home to Solidarity, the anti-communist movement in which Kaczynski was a leading figure.

The new issue is the 13th Polish commemorative banknote since the first one in 2006, on the anniversary of Karol Wojty?a’s election to the papacy.
