Poland has issued so many coins, they couldn't avoid an owl if they'd wanted to. I like the name Bubo bubo. I think owls like it too. They keep saying it.
I really like this one. (Currently in e-bay watch list 8)) We hardly see owls in India now. They are caught and misused for black magic. ::) It is said that if you see an owl, it will bring bad luck. Now definitely in my list of coins which 'must be a part of collection'..

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Looks like a medallic issue for the US retail "investor" who doesn't know how to invest in silver. These pieces carry very high transaction cost. To invest in silver cheaply, buy and sell silver options or a silver ETA, but remember that silver has a guaranteed return of zero. Your only hope is that it will increase in price.
