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.

Acctually you can still exchange it in the Polish National Bank. I found a couple of those banknotes a year ago and learned that they can be exchanged till 2010

500 000 = 50 PLN
10 000 = 10 PLN
1 000 = 1 PLN
200 = 0,20 PLN

61,20 PLN ~ 25 USD

We have Zlotych from 1982 -1989 in the following denominations. In looking at the responses I am confused on the exchange rate, is it 10,000 to 1?

500
1000
5000
10000
50000

Drop 4 x 0

50,000 = 5zl

The total of the above wouldn't buy you a packet of ciggies.

Yes If you mean old złoty/new złoty. So...

lblyze:

500
1000
5000
10000
50000


500=0.05 PLN
1000=0.1 PLN
5000=0.5 PLN
10000=1PLN
50000=5 PLN

And 1USD=~3PLN

So generally they are worth hardly anything and you may exchange them only in the Polish central bank. You may sell them to people collecting banknotes but only If they are in perfect/very good condition and still you rather won't get more than a few times nominal value.

Have you done anything with your old Polish banknotes as yet? I am interested in collecting old Polish currency and would have interest in your banknotes if you have no interest in them. Please contact me if you're willing? Thanks.

Banco Nacional Ultramarino - MocambiqueCem Esoudos = 2 x 100

Narodowy Bank Poliski - Piecset Zlotych 1982 = 5 x 500 (one in VERY good condition)
1986 = 2 x 100
1988 = 2 x 100

Banco Central De Reserva Del Peru - Mil Soles De Oro = 5 x 1000
" " " " - Cinco Mil Soles De Oro = 1 x 5000

I just found out that because Poland was under the communist rule before 1993, that any Zloty from that time doesn't have the same value of the modern Zloty.
Anything before 1993 is communist money.
With that in mind, i have a 1983 1000 Zloty like the one here:

livephysics.com/gallery/v/physicists/Nicolaus_Copernicus_2C_1000_old_P olish_Zloty__281982_29.jpg.html

If anyone wants it, make me an offer.
xjimjimx@gmail.com

A modern 1000 Zloty would be worth about $297.87 USD
I'd take far less.

If your in, or near Chicago, IL, there are 2 Travelex currency exchanges downtown;

19 S. La Salle St.
312-807-4941

They'll exchange just about any modern currency, but I don't think they take coinage.

May 8, 09, 21:46 - Thread attached on merging:
Information needed for Third Polish Zloty Bank Notes.

Hello! I'm writing from Canada with the hopes that someone in Poland can help answer something for me.
We were left with $17 850.00 Third Polish Zloty Bank Notes a few years back. I'm aware that it went out of circulation in 1996, and can only be exchanged at The National Bank of Poland until December 2010. Is the value of them any less because they're Third PLZ Bank Notes compared to the recent ones? Over the past 2 years I've gotten so many different answers and am wondering if they're really worth anything. The banks have told me they're worth something, they just can't help me out since it's no longer exchangeable on the world market.
Any feedback as to what they're worth would be so greatly appreciated!
Thank-you so much for your time in advance!

They're really worth 1.75 new ZLP, that is 1/2 of a can of beer. I'd keep them as a souvenir if I were you.

That is correct information, Minelle. Old zlotys were denominated at a 10000:1 ratio.
Thanks for posting the picture, it was nice seeing all those Warynski's, Kosciuszko's
and Kopernik's again :-)

What do you mean ? Almost 18k of old złoty ? If yes then they are worth what Bart said, so almost nothing.
