Poland 2004-MW 200 zlotych Fr-160
This specimen was lot 1885 in Goldberg sale 106 (Los Angeles, September 2018), where it sold for $624. The catalog description noted, "Poland. 200 Zlotych, 2004-MW. Golden eagle. NGC graded MS-69." Poland obtained her freedom in the early 1990's with the fall of the Berlin Wall but the new government found the treasury as empty as before. NCLT's ("Non Circulating Legal Tender" coinage) were issued in a bewildering array to help stem the flow. This type, struck 2002-08, was strictly a bullion coin.
Recorded mintage: 1,000 proofs.
