Polish banknote – 0 euro – coming soon. It was created for collector’s purposes, but the appearance and security technique is no different from the euro, which is carried in the wallet by citizens of many European Union countries.
For the first time, Poland will have its bank note of the EU currency – the euro. On Sunday, November 24, the collector’s denomination of 0 euro will be shown at the Warsaw Collector’s Exchange , on which Sigismund’s Column and the Royal Castle will appear.
This is the first Polish edition of the banknote. A special “PL” sign will appear at the bottom says Szymon Bereska from Euro Souvenir. – This is a closed edition, which means that there will be no reprinting – he adds.
The banknote is a faithful copy of the currency that is used every day in many European Union countries. It was printed in the French printing house Oberthur, which is responsible for printing original euro banknotes on a daily basis. The same cotton paper was used for its production. In addition, it takes security features such as a hologram, watermark, microprint, etc., which are known from euro banknotes.
A 0 euro banknote – although you can’t pay with it – is a treat for collectors. On Sunday, November 24 from 10 am it will be available for 15 zlotys. This is the only opportunity, because the issue of 5000 pieces is intended for sale only on the Warsaw Collector’s Exchange (you need to pay PLN 8 for admission to the stock exchange). As we hear, interest is huge. There are collectors not only from Poland, but also from the Czech Republic or Germany showing large interest.
This is not the first time Poland has appeared on euro banknotes. So far, two have been broadcast outside our western border – with Pope John Paul II and for the Euro 2012. Germany was responsible for their production, so 0 euro will be the first banknote of this currency prepared especially for Poland, with our national marking.
Euro Souvenir produces collector banknotes 0 euro for tourist purposes. They are to help promote various countries and places, not necessarily those with a common European currency. Sometimes collectors can also make good money on them.
– In Prague, before the death of Karel Gott, a 0 euro banknote with his image was issued. Amazing queues of people eager to buy it. The banknote was sold for 2 euros. After the death of Karel Gott, his collector’s value increased to 300-400 euros – says Szymon Bereska and adds that the banknote was also issued in a circulation of five thousand copies.
