A brief annotation The prehistoric flint mine of Krzemionki Opatowskie is one of the most important historic sites in Poland, and the foremost Neolithic monument in Central Europe. In the galleries were preserved some simple pictograms drawn on the walls using charcoal from the torches which gave light. The underground chambers of Krzemionki Opatowskie represent the most advanced form of flint mining in prehistoric Europe. Each side of the 20 zł coin depicts part of one of the chambers with a standing limestone pillar: the obverse features the pillar in its present condition, while the reverse shows how it looked 30 years ago.
