POLAND

MULTICOLOR SILVER & GLASS MADE PROOF COIN
A group of about eight craftsmen and artisans from Poland were part of the second party of settlers to join the Jamestown settlement in Virginia. They arrived in 1608, just two years after the founding of Jamestown as the first permanent English settlement in North America.  Included in the party were glass makers who built a first glass smelting furnace, allowing for the production of jars and windowpanes.  To mark the 400th anniversary of these early settlers, Poland issued a silver and glass 10 Zlotych. The 10 Zlote has a glass center picturing a glass blower surrounded by a silver ring. Various images of the settlers and their craft are pictured on the silver ring. The silver has an antiqued finish. The coin comes in a protective plastic capsule.






SILVER PROOF COIN

Poland issued this commemorative 10 Zlote coins in 2008 to honor the 2008 Beijing Olympics.  The 32mm sterling silver Proof 10 Zlotych has a square center hole, echoing the traditional square holed Chinese cash coin. The coin contains .4205 troy ounces of silver.   A windsurfer is on the reverse.  The obverse shows the a portion of the Forbidden City, the logo of the Polish Olympic committee.
