Piece with very nicely preserved details.
This issue was more shallowly minted than the 1925 2 zloty with a dot, which is reflected in its rarity and price.
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 struck in Philadelphia in 1924 (800,000 pieces), the highest mintage in London in 1925 (11,000,000 pieces).
Obverse: crowned eagle, in the rim an inscription: RZECZPOSPOLITA POLSKA and the year without a dot.
Reverse: bust of a girl in a headscarf, ears of grain in front of her, inscription 2 ZŁOTE above.
