Commemorates the 28th Anniversary of Karol Wojtya's election to the papacy.

 

Front: Pope John Paul II (1920-2005), holding his crucifix-topped staff against a background of the world map, symbolising the universal nature of his pontificate

 

Born Karol Józef Wojtyla in Wadowice, Poland, Pope John Paul was elected the only Polish Pope in Vatican's history on October 16, 1978 and reigned for more than 26 years. His early reign was marked by his opposition to communism, and he is often credited as one of the forces which contributed to its collapse in Eastern Europe.

 

Back: Inauguration of John Paul II with Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski (1901-1981), the legendary Primate of the Millenium, the leader of the Catholic Church in the then still Communist Poland.

 

The National Bank of Poland issued the notes to collectors at 90 Zlotych, eventhough the face value is only 50 Zlotych.
