A circulating piece of the prized variety.

The coin was struck to order at the Philadelphia mint. The denomination introduced by the January 11, 1924 reform was minted between 1924 and 1925 at mints in Paris, London, Birmingham and Philadelphia. According to the law of January 20, 1924, silver coins could be used to pay debts up to a maximum of 100 zlotys. The coin remained in circulation until December 31, 1932, and was exchanged at NBP coffers in 1933-1934.

Coins differ from each other depending on the mint where they were struck. Coins from Paris have the Monnaies de Paris horn and torch mark and are usually characterized by inferior strike. Coins from Birmingham have the letter H under the eagle's paw, while the eagle itself is noticeably skinnier than on coins minted at other mints. On the 1924 Philadelphia coins, the obverse and reverse are reversed 180 degrees (known as the reverse); both vintages from this mint have no mintmarks. Coins from London have a minted dot after the year.

The lowest mintage of the coin was minted in Philadelphia in 1924 (800,000 pieces), the highest mintage in London in 1925 (11,000,000 pieces).

Coins minted to Tadeusz Breyer's design in .750 silver, with a diameter of 27 mm and a prescribed weight of 10 g.

Obverse: crowned eagle, in the rim an inscription: RZECZPOSPOLITA POLSKA and the year.

Reverse: inverted bust of a girl in a headscarf, in front of her ears of grain, above it an inscription 2 ZŁOTE.

Edge: serrated;
