Another coin joins to the "Discover Poland" series. This time it presents the Crane Gate in Gdańsk.

The Crane Gate is one of the most recognisable elements of Gdańsk. Every year millions of tourists return from Gdańsk with a souvenir photo on the Motława river, just with the Crane in the back.

This historic port crane is located at the end of Szeroka Street. It is one of the branches of the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk and the largest and oldest surviving port crane in medieval Europe.

The gate at this place already existed in 1363, and from 1367 a Latin reference to the crane caranum survives. In its present form, the Żuraw was built between 1442 and 1444. 

The crane was set on fire in 1945, when the city was captured by the Red Army. The wooden part burnt down, but part of the walls survived. The gate was reconstructed at the end of 1950s, and on 18 December 1959 the Crane was entered in the register of monuments. At the beginning of 2021, a general renovation of the interior of the building began, which is estimated to take 2 years.
