This year's issue is dedicated to Krzysztof Klenczon. He was a Polish composer, singer and guitarist of rock music. In the years 1962-1964 he was a guitarist of the band Niebiesko-Czarni, with which he performed in 1963 in "Olympia" in Paris. He was the leader of the famous band "Czerwone Gitary" (1965-1970). He was also a composer of the greatest hits of the "Czerwone Gitary" (next to Seweryn Krajewski).

On 11 October 1993, an association aimed at promoting the artistic work of Krzysztof Klenczon was registered in Gdynia.

The coin was struck from sterling silver 925. The reverse shows an image of Krzysztof Klenczon against a fragment of vinyl plate. The obverse of the coin shows stylized images of a turntable arm and a fragment of vinyl plate. The album features a fragment of the song 'White Cross', whose music was composed by Krzysztof Klenczon, while the words were written by Janusz Kondratowicz. This cult song was dedicated by Krzysztof Klenczon to his father, a Home Army partisan, hiding for a long time under his changed name. "White Cross" won first prize at the Opole Festival on 27 June 1969.
