It is quite possible that Poland will go for the euro in the years to come, as it is slowly being surrounded by euro-using countries, but I wonder if Polish politicians have understood that this is not your average Germany week or French food event, but a long-term collaborative project that requires give and take and understanding of others.

In view of Polish conservatism and nationalism, I would be very surprised if foreign designers could compete. Their loss.

You know that I am somewhat pragmatic when it comes to coin designs. With pieces for a fictitious country that would be different, but when I know we are talking about Polish euro designs ...

As for the date, replace "2012" with "2020" or so. ;)  As far as I can tell, none of the non-euro countries (except Lithuania of course) plans to introduce the euro in this decade.

The eagle with the full country name looks good in my opinion. And while I basically like the hatched half of the ring, it does not make much sense. Partly because the European Commission may not appreciate it ;) partly because heraldically the horizontal lines represent blue. Red, as in the Polish flag, would be vertical lines.

John Paul II on a commem, sure, why not. But I don't think he would appear on a circulation coin. Chopin, Curie and Copernicus are fine, the Culture Palace, hmmm.

Having the map/outline and the eagle side by side ... well, I am not so fond of the idea. Maybe a bigger "map" with the eagle in the middle would work. But I like the people an animals designs better.
