Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: the image of the Eagle established as the state emblem of the Republic of Poland. To the left of the Eagle, the year of issue: 2015. Underneath, the inscriptions: RZECZPOSPOLITA / POLSKA (the Republic of Poland) / 10 ZŁ. On the left, at the top, the inscription: „[…] UDZIELAMY / WYBACZENIA / I PROSIMY / O NIE” (“We forgive and ask for forgiveness”). In the background of the inscription and, partly, of the Eagle, a fragment of the letter of 18 November 1965 addressed by the Polish bishops to the German bishops, in microprint. Reverse: centrally, an image of Archbishop Bolesław Kominek and, on the right, outlines of images of Archbishop Karol Wojtyła and Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński. Along the rim, the inscription: 50. ROCZNICA WYSTOSOWANIA ORĘDZIA BISKUPÓW POLSKICH DO NIEMIECKICH (50th Anniversary of the Letter of Reconciliation of the Polish Bishops to the German Bishops).
A brief annotation At the end of the Second Vatican Council, on 18 November 1965, Polish bishops addressed a letter of reconciliation to German bishops, with its essence summarized by the words: “We forgive and ask for forgiveness”. Even though written 20 years after the end of World War II and the shifting of the borders of numerous countries (including Poland and Germany), the letter was an act of courage and wisdom since not all the newly demarcated borders had been officially approved by the countries neighbouring on each other.
