INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

On 10 April 2010, a delegation of representatives of the Polish elite, headed by the President of Poland Lech Kaczyński and the last President of the Republic of Poland in exile, Ryszard Kaczorowski, went to Katyn. They were to pay tribute to the victims of the Katyn crime.

The presidential delegation included deputy marshals of the Sejm and Senate, representatives of parliament, commanders of all kinds of the Polish Armed Forces, employees of the President's Chancellery, heads of state institutions, including the President of NBP Sławomir Skrzypek, representatives of ministries, veterans' and social organizations, clergy and accompanying persons.

At 8:41 a.m. Polish time, the Presidential plane crashed while approaching the landing at Smolensk airport. 96 people were killed.

On the 10th anniversary of the Smolensk tragedy the National Bank of Poland issued a silver coin in memory of people who died in the Smolensk crash.

On the reverse of the coin there is a personification of Poland - a figure of a woman embracing the deformed sign of the Polish Air Force, forming a sign of the cross in the central part. At the top are the names of people who died in the plane crash on 10 April 2010.

The obverse of the coin shows a fragment of Wawel Cathedral, the inscription "CORPORA DORMIVNT - VIGILANT ANIMAE". ("THE BODIES ARE ASLEEP - THE SOULS ARE WATCHING"), coming from the canopy over the exit from the royal graves at Wawel Castle, in the background there is an image of the Presidential Palace in Warsaw.
