POLISH BANKNOTE TO HONOR POPE JOHN PAUL II

According to an April 20 BBC News report, "Poland's central
bank has revealed a new banknote depicting the late Polish-born
Pope John Paul II.

The note, worth 50 zloty (9), portrays the Pope on both sides
and will go into circulation in October.

It bears religious symbols linked to John Paul II, quotes from
his speeches, a copy of his signature and the dates of his long
papacy, from 1978 to 2005."

"The National Bank of Poland did not say how many of the new
notes would be released on October 16, which marks the 28th
anniversary of John Paul II's election as head of the Catholic
Church."
