The National Bank of Poland

The National Bank of Poland

From 1st January, 1995 Narodowy Bank Polski has been issuing 9 denominations of circulation coins, six of which are minted by Mennica Polska: 10gr, 20gr, 50 gr, 1 zl, 2 zl and 5 zl.

On the obverse of each circulation coin there is an image of the eagle established as the emblem of the Republic of Poland and the year of issue, which is the actual year of minting the coin. Along the rim there is an inscription: RZECZPOSPOLITA POLSKA (THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND).

 


In the central part of the circulation coin reverse there is a number - the nominal value expressed in gr or zl. Along the edge there is a decorative ornament in the form of oak leaves - different for each denomination.

1gr, 2gr and 5gr coins are made of brass-coated steel, while those in the denominations of 10gr, 20gr, 50gr and 1zl are made of cupronickel (MN25). 2zl and 5zl coins are both minted of cupronickel (the 2 zl coin core and the 5 zl coin ring) as well as of aluminium bronze (the 5 zl coin core and the 2zl coin ring).

Depending on the denomination, the coin edge is reeded (1gr, 20gr and 50gr) or plain (2gr and 2zl), the plain edge alternates with the reeded one (5gr, 10gr and 1zl) or is irregularly milled (5zl).

The National Bank of Colombia

The National Bank of Colombia

Mennica Polska completed a contract for nearly 125 million circulation coins made to order of the National Bank of Colombia. The coin with the denomination of 200 pesos (60.5 million pieces) was entirely made of nickel silver – the alloy of copper, nickel and zinc. For the production of the bimetallic coin of 500 pesos (64 million pieces) there was used aluminium bronze in addition to nickel silver. The image on the obverse transits seamlessly from the core to the ring.

 
 

The National Bank of the Republic of Armenia

The National Bank of the Republic of Armenia

In 2012 we completed a contract for 18 million circulation coins in the denominations of 10 drams for the Central Bank of Armenia.


Today, in most countries, coins made entirely of aluminium are a relic of the past. They are very small, and, due to the characteristics of the ore, also extremely light.

The Central Bank of the Dominican Republic

The Central Bank of the Dominican Republic

In 2009 Mennica Polska issued 2 denominations (10 pesos - 25 million pieces; 5 pesos - 30 million pieces) of circulation coins for the Central Bank of the Dominican Republic. Aluminium bronze, cupronickel and stainless steel were used for their production.
