Old Polish money banknotes - what's their value today?

10 Aug 2016  #301

The Zloty was revalued in 1993. The rate for old to new Zloty was 10,000:1 and the old currency was valid for two years only I believe. Your old notes are therefore worthless and useful only as souvenirs.

BTW the Euro is not the currency in Poland - it is the Zloty.

If you could convert it, which I'm not sure if you could, it would be worth 10 current zloties (back in the mid-90s they launched new zloties with 4 less 0's).

10 new zloties are worth about 2 and one half euros. Probably not worth the bother of converting.

That's not possible you have 1908 polish bill as Poland haven't existed in that time - it was occupied. Money from that time could be some value really, for the historical note collectors, it depends on the conservation and historical value. I've been such collector for some time, I still have some notes and coins, but I don't really do that anymore. I'd love to see the photos anyway, also maybe I could help in telling you what you have.


It's worth almost nothing.


That could be some value for collectors. Can I see the photo?

I have bundles of banknotes from all around the world. These are not exchangeable at the bank here in the U.S. My dad had a coin shop way back when and I inherited these little beauties ( thousands of them ). If you would like me to send you a list of what I have, let me know and I would be happy to accommodate you.

What about polish coins. I have collections of them from early 1930's up until mid 1990's. Some proofs and some not proofs. Most are silver. Some are nordic gold. All denominations of zl from 200,000 to 10. No bank in the USA will convert coins to US dollars. Where can I convert these polish coins to us dollars? Does anyone know? any info would be greatly appreciated. send an email to

Nowhere. As money, they are worthless, and no bank anywhere will redeem them for you. As collector's items, that depends on what a collector will pay for them. Might be practically nothing, or might be something substantial, depending on the nature of the collection. You'll have to do your research and shop around for an interested buyer. Most likely, they have only sentimental value, in which case they would make a good gift for a young person who is interested in coin collecting.

Thank you DominicB for your response and for your time. I am going through Fischer, looking up each one. I have done about half of them so far. Have about a hundred more to go through. What a waste of time and money my Father sunk into these useless collections. He said, you can live the rest of your life on these coins and stamps. The mints that produce these coins, proof coins that is, only make money for themselves. Taking a lot of money from people. Some of them aren't even worth what they say, and not even worth that amount in silver. Very sad indeed. Because my Father paid a fortune for all of this over the 50 years, and his stamp collections (1,000's of them). Time to use the stamps as postage, that's about it and the boxes of coin sets as door stoppers.

Look on the bright side. At least he didn't spend it on cheap wh0res and cocaine.

Yes, collecting is generally a very poor investment. It can be a fun hobby, but very rarely pays off financially, and then only for the very few who acquire genuine expertise.

Good luck!
