2 m pieces of collector note with the image of John Paul II
On 16 October 2006, the National Bank of Poland will issue 2 m pieces of the first Polish collector note with the image of Pope John Paul II. As in the case of collector coins, the sales price will be higher than the nominal price - the note with the face value of PLN 50 will be sold by the NBP at PLN 90 per item. This difference results, inter alia, from the costs of design and production, special packaging in which the note will be distributed, and a VAT tax.
The note presentation was held on 19 April and it was attended by Archbishop Józef Kowalczyk, Apostolic Nuncio to Poland, and Leszek Balcerowicz, President of the National Bank of Poland. The final design of the note will be made public in September 2006.
