The złoty (plural for numbers ending in 2, 3 and 4 (except 12, 13 and 14): złote , plural for all other numbers: złotych ), (sign: ; code: PLN) literally meaning "golden", is the currency of Poland. The modern złoty is subdivided into 100 groszy (singular: grosz, alternate plural form: grosze).

As a result of hyperinflation in the early 1990s, the currency underwent redenomination. Thus, on January 1, 1995, 10 000 old złotych (PLZ) became one new złoty (PLN).

Poland will probably move to the Euro before 2017.
