NBP to issue 500 złoty banknote

23.06.2015 15:45

The new note will feature the image King Jan Sobieski III, thus continuing the chronological continuity of the "Polish Rulers" series.

The NBP plans to introduce the banknote before 2017.

It's not yet known exactly what the note will look like, the NBP said.

The bank also on Tuesday unveiled an updated 200 złoty note, which will be in circulation by February 2016, it said.

The aim of the new 500 złoty note is to lower costs of issuance and increase effectiveness of monetary management, according to Marek Oleś, the director of the issuance-treasury department at the NBP.

The Polish Rulers series was designed by Andrzej Heidrich, and was initiated in 1995.
