|This is a handful of the present day coins from Poland. The U.S. penny is there for size comparison. These coins are worth much more than the old ones on the previous page. The groszy is now more like our penny than CHANGE for a penny!!|
The present rate of exchange is about 4.33 zlote for a dollar. There are 100 groszy in a zloty. The largest denomination of coin is 5 zlotych. Everything from 10 zlotych on up is paper money.
In the late 1970's the "de facto" exchange rate was 100 to 120 zlotych for a dollar. It got MUCH worse in the years that followed, until the present currency was adopted.
