Poland 2008-MW 100 zlotych Fr-231
This specimen was lot 24687 in Stack's Bowers NYINC sale (New York, January 2018), where it sold for $480. The catalog description noted, "POLAND. 100 Zlotych, 2008-MW. NGC PROOF-70 ULTRA CAMEO. Commemorates the 400th Anniversary of Polish Settlement in North America. Hard mirror fields with frosted cameo devices. Brilliant and attractive." 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 one honors the 400th Anniversary of Polish Settlement in North America.
