Poland announces 19-zlotych commemorative note

The Narodowi Bank Polski (National Bank of Poland) will issue a new commemorative banknote from 2 October 2019. The new note will have the peculiar denomination of 19-zlotych. The note commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Polish Security Printing Works.

"The front side of the banknote carries a portrait of Ignacy Jan Pa - derewski, and a stylized image of the Order of the White Eagle is presented next to the inscription "niepodległa" ("independent"). This inscription, reproduced from Józef Piłsudski’s manuscript, serves as the logo of the official celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Po - land regaining independence. A special kind of latent image developed by PWPW, known as Umbra4Note, is incorporated into the image of a laurel branch symbolizing brotherhood and victory.

The back side of the banknote carries the image of the PWPW building, presented against the backdrop of a panoramic view of contemporary Warsaw. Next to the image, there is the PWPW logo printed in the SPARK Live technology and an iridescent stripe, also visible under UV light, in the form of the number "19" and the abbreviation "NBP", repeated alternately."

A total of 55,000 notes will be issued. 

Update 26-10-2019: the note has been issued at this moment.
