The Mint of Poland coins have received numerous top prizes in the Coin Constellation contest for many years. A year ago, the title of the silver coin of the year was awarded to a 10-zloty coin with the image of Czesław Niemen (10 zł) and the special prize was given to the "Zodiac Signs" series of coins which were struck for Belarus by the Mint of Poland.
As many as seven coins from the Mint of Poland were awarded in 2009.
