Poland to issue new polymer commemorative banknote

Last year the National Bank of Poland (NBP, Narodowi Bank Polski) announced that a commemorative note would be issued in August 2014 commemorating the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Polish Legions by marshall and statesman Josef Pilsudski. These legions were officialy formed with an order by Pilsudski issued on 22 August 1914. The new notes will however be issued on 5 August 2014. Exactly 50.000 notes will be sold as numismatic products and will be featuring the portrait of Jozef Pilsudski designed by Andrzej Heidrich.

The banknotes, commissioned by NBP, were manufactured by the Polish Security Printing Works and are the first polymer notes issued in Poland. They have the same design as the 5.000.000-zlotych notes from 1995 which were never officially issued because of the revaluation of the zlotych.
