The Polish Zloti is the official currency of Poland. Like many other currencies, the zloty can be subdivided into 10 smaller units of currency known as groszy. The Polish Zloti was preceded by the Polish Mark and a kopa. Because Poland is a member of the European Union, it is supposed to at some point adopt the shared currency, the euro. It remains unclear when this might occur, however, and the country could potentially see significant opposition to such a move.
The Narodowy Bank Polski, or National Bank of Poland, is the country’s central bank. Tis central bank is responsible for issuing and controlling the nation’s currency. It is headquartered in Warsaw, with several branches in other locations.
Like many other central banks, the National Bank of Poland maintains part of its reserves in gold, According to Tradingeconomics.com, the central banks was holding 102.94 tons of gold as of the third quarter of 2016. Central banks may hold gold bullion to diversify their reserves and add credibility to their currency.

The Mint of Poland
The Mennica Polska, or Mint of Poland, is a private company in charge of minting coins for Poland. The Mint is located in Warsaw, and is not only involved in the production of coinage but is also involved in medals, diamonds and electronic payments.
The Mint of Poland has been in operation for over 250 years, and it is one of the most technologically advanced mints in the world. The mint produces not only circulation coinage but also numismatic coins as well for the Polish National Bank.
The Polish Economy
Poland’s economy is the largest in central Europe and one of the largest among EU members. The services sector accounts for a significant portion of Poland’s economy, with industry and agriculture among other products. Poland is an exporter of plastics, electronics, machinery and more. Poland has seen steady growth for some time now, and it even avoided falling into recession during the 2008/2009 financial crises.
The private business sector has helped fuel Poland’s economic growth as the country adopted a policy of economic liberalization. Although foreign investment in the country may be on the rise, the country’s economy still faces numerous challenges.
One major factor that may have allowed Poland to avoid recession during 2008 and 2009 is the country’s low levels of debt, which as a percentage of GDP run well below EU averages. Poland also has financial regulations in place that may help avoid individuals and business from getting into excessive debt.
As the Polish economy continues to expand, higher employment rates and higher wages could potentially increase demand for gold. Demand for gold jewelry could potentially increase, and more citizens could look to gold as a means of added portfolio diversification. A stronger Polish economy could also potentially increase the value of its currency which could make gold relatively less expensive for buyers. A stronger currency can also aid in attracting foreign investment.
