Numismat issued on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the hanging of the Sigismund Bell at Wawel.

The reverse shows an image of the Sigismund Bell located in the Sigismund Tower of Wawel Cathedral in Cracow. On the obverse side there is an image of a crowned eagle, referring to the eagle of Sigismund Augustus of 1568 as the symbol of the Polish State.

The Sigismund Bell is the most famous Polish bell, commonly but incorrectly called the Sigismund Bell. It was founded by Sigismund I the Old and named after him.

On the mantle of the bell you can see figures of saints: Sigismund and Stanislaus. There are also the coats of arms of Poland and Lithuania. It was placed on the tower on 9 July 1521. On 13 July 1521 Krakow heard its voice for the first time. In the 19th century the bell's heart broke three times, but was promptly repaired. On Christmas Eve 2000 another crack was found. The Sigismund Bell was the largest Polish bell until 1999, when it was surpassed in weight and size by the Licheń bell of Mary the Mother of God.
