Poland 2, 5, and 10 Zlotych  1932 to 1934
Poland 2, 5, and 10 Zlotych 1932 to 1934

Yes, that is Queen Jadwiga on the front of this neat coin from Poland. These are silver coins with the following silver content:

2 zlote: 0.106 troy ounces silver
5 zlotych: 0.265 ounces
10 zlotych: 0.531 ounces

The silver content gives the base value (BV) for these coins. If you have one in good shape, collectors will pay over the silver value. Here are some typical catalog values:

2 ZLOTE
worn: base value*
average circulated: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $35

5 ZLOTYCH
worn: base value*
average circulated: $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $70

10 ZLOTYCH
worn: base value*
average circulated: $12 US dollars approximate catalog value
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $120

To figure the base value for this coin, find the current price of silver at web sites like kitco.com and multiply by the silver content shown above. For instance, if silver is trading, say, at $20 US dollars per troy ounce, then the BV for a 5 zlotych would be 0.265 x 20 = $5.30 US dollars.
