The first numismat from the new series "Polish Nobel Prize Winners". It was issued to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the award of the second Nobel Prize to Marie Skłodowska-Curie. 

The reverse depicts the figure of Marie Skłodowska-Curie against the background of a chemistry laboratory, as well as symbols of the chemical elements she discovered in 1898 - polonium and radium. The obverse depicts a crowned eagle, referring to the eagle of Zygmunt August of 1568 as the symbol of the Polish state.

Maria Skłodowska-Curie was a chemist and physicist, a two-time winner of the Nobel Prize. In 1903, together with her husband Pierre Curie, she received the Nobel Prize in Physics for her research on radioactivity and the Davy Medal awarded by the Royal Society in London. In the same year she was awarded a doctorate. In 1911 she received a second Nobel Prize, this time individually and in chemistry, for the discovery of radium and polonium. Interestingly, in 1916 she was one of the first women in the world to obtain a driving licence. Maria died in 1934 of malignant anaemia, preceded by radiation sickness. All her belongings were contaminated with radium isotope.
