Pope JPII Money

The next 50 Zloty banknote you put into your pocket may be Poland's new banknote depicting the late Polish-born Pope John Paul II.

The note, worth about $19, portrays the Pope on both sides and is going into circulation presently.

Poles are overwhelmingly Catholic and hold John Paul II, who died in April last year, in huge regard. Many credit him with inspiring Poles to challenge Communism and with helping to bring an end to the Cold War.

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.

You could always take what JPII said to the bank. Now you can do it literally. Thanks for sharing the bank notes photo.
