Reply with quote

A few weeks ago Mint of Poland issued coins for 400 years anniversary of arrival of first Polish settlers in North America. According to short and interesting history article from the website of NYPD Pulaski Association (click here: http://www.nypdpulaskiassoc.org/history.htm ), the first Poles on American's land were: Zbigniew Stefanski, Jan Mata, Jan Bogdan, Karol Zrenica, Stanislaw Sadowski and Michal Lowicki.

By this anniversary occasion it is worthy to mention the article and comment written by Charles Ciechanowski here: http://forum.polishorigins.com/viewtopic.php?t=223 about Paris Township and the first Polish Communities in America.

Below you will find pictures of the Silver and Nordic Gold coins I took to show you. (For those who are interested in Polish Husaria, the next set of coins issued by Mint of Poland are entitled "Hussar in 17th century" - I will also present them soon.)
