The back side of the banknote carries the image of the PWPW building, presented against the backdrop of a panoramic view of contemporary Warsaw. Next to the image, there is the PWPW logo printed in the SPARK Live technology and an iridescent stripe, also visible under UV light, in the form of the number “19” and the abbreviation “NBP”, repeated alternately.
The front side of the banknote carries a portrait of Ignacy Jan Paderewski, and a stylized image of the Order of the White Eagle is presented next to the inscription “niepodległa” (“independent”). This inscription, reproduced from Józef Piłsudski’s manuscript, serves as the logo of the official celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence. A special kind of latent image developed by PWPW, known as Umbra4Note, is incorporated into the image of a laurel branch symbolizing brotherhood and victory.
