About the currency
Coins and notes
The Polish zloty is divided into 100 groszy (think of groszy as the Polish form of cents, and zloties as the Polish form of dollars… except they both sound way cooler). Polish banknotes are circulated in $10, $20, $50, $100 and $200 denominations, and coins come in 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1, $2 and $5 quantities. Prosty! (That’s polish for simple.)
Facts about the currency
- Poland joined the European Union in May 2004, but it hasn’t yet adopted the euro. This means you’ll need to come prepared with some Polish zloty.
- The name “zloty” comes from the Polish word for golden.
- Dating back to the Middle Ages, the zloty has a long and complicated history. It was replaced by Russian currency during the late 1800s, and then by German currency in WWI, before eventually being brought back to Poland.
- A financial crisis in the 1980s led to a dramatic redenomination of the zloty. The currency has been fairly stable since then.
