We are the official distributor of coins and banknotes issued by the National Bank of Poland.

Each coin has a different pattern of striped flint. No two copies are the same! On the reverse of the coin issued on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the mine's discovery, there is an image of a prehistoric miner at work and an elliptical inlay made of striped flint.

The obverse of the coin features the characteristic symbol of the Great Mother. It is a drawing made with charcoal on the surface of a limestone pillar of one of the mines in Krzemionki. Most likely, it presents a figure related to the beliefs and mythology of Neolithic miners. It is one of the few examples of prehistoric rock art from the area of contemporary Poland. Currently, it is in the logotype of the Archaeological Museum and the "Krzemionki" Reserve (a branch of the Historical and Archaeological Museum in Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski).

The issue of collectors' items is an opportunity to commemorate important historical anniversaries and people and to develop interests in Polish culture, science and tradition.

All coins and banknotes issued by the NBP are legal tender in Poland.
