INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

The year 2020 marks the 700th anniversary of the consecration of the Gothic St. Mary's Church in Krakow. On this occasion, the National Bank of Poland issued a silver coin dedicated to this very church.

According to Jan Długosz, the first parish church was founded between 1221 and 1222, and in later years a new church in the early Gothic style was erected on its foundations. Over the following centuries the building was repeatedly rebuilt. In the years 1477-1489 St. Mary's Church was enriched with a grand altar, a late Gothic sculptural masterpiece by master Wit Stwosz. 

The coin's reverse shows an image of St. Mary's Church in Kraków and a colourful stained glass window. On the obverse there is a fragment of a window from the presbytery of St. Mary's Church in Cracow with a coloured stained glass window.
