Poland G106-1885r.jpg

This specimen was lot 1885 in Goldberg sale 106 (Los Angeles, September 2018), where it sold for $624. The catalog description[1] noted, "Poland. 200 Zlotych, 2004-MW. Golden eagle.

Recorded mintage: 1,000 proofs.

Specification: 15.55 g, .900 fine gold, 27 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: Y-294, Fr-B2 (formerly Fr-160).
