On 6 September 2022, the National Bank of Poland is launching a silver coin with the face value of PLN 50, "XVI International Numismatic Congress".

International numismatic congresses are the most important meetings of numismatists from all over the world. During the conferences, the most significant achievements in the field of studies on the history of money, found coins and historical events are presented. These congresses have been organised, among others, in Belgium, Spain and Italy. A numismatic congress is an excellent opportunity to present a country, its scientific institutions and other centres dealing with the history of money. The International Numismatic Commission decides on the choice of venue. Poland was honoured to host the conference for the first time. The 16th International Numismatic Congress will be held in Warsaw in September 2022. It is jointly organised by the University of Warsaw, the Royal Castle in Warsaw, the National Museum in Warsaw, the National Museum in Krakow, the National Bank of Poland and the Polish Numismatic Society.

The coin bears the image of Joachim Lelewel (1786-1861), one of the most eminent Poles of the 19th century, a great patriot, an excellent historian and a world-renowned and highly regarded numismatist. As a professor at Vilnius University, Joachim Lelewel was one of the first to give lectures on numismatics. Forced to leave the country in 1831, after the fall of the November Uprising, he continued and developed his numismatic studies in Paris and later in Brussels. A book on the numismatics of medieval Europe was a huge success that brought Lelewel international fame, not least because of his new methods of study. Lelewel was also the author of an innovative treatise on Celtic numismatics published in Brussels. This publication placed Lelewel among the pioneers in this field.

The coin's reverse features the portrait of Joachim Lelewel, while the obverse bears the images of the following coins: a thaler of Władysław IV, a thaler of John Casimir from 1663, a penny of Casimir the Great, a sixpence of John III Sobieski, and a denarius of Princes Polonie of Bolesław Chrobry.
