The reverse of the jubilee coin features the image of the Lutheran Bishop Juliusz Bursche, with a Commander’s Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta. The Bishop was distinguished by his faithful service to Poland. In spring 1919, he participated in the Paris Peace Conference as the Polish expert on the issue of Cieszyn Silesia and East Prussia. In the years 1919-1920, he led the Polish plebiscite committee in Warmia. It was because of his allegiance to Poland that he died a martyr’s death at the Moabit Prison in Berlin in February 1942.

The obverse of the jubilee coin features a fragment of the text of the so-called Warsaw Confederation, signed in January 1573 at the Convocation Sejm. Several articles of that legal act were devoted to ensuring religious freedoms for the various Christian denominations. From that point on it was prohibited to use violence or to force someone to change their religion.

Five Centuries of the Reformation in Poland

On 31 October 1517, the Augustinian monk Martin Luther announced 95 theses against the sale of indulgences. This event is seen as the symbolic beginning of the Reformation, which quickly spread across Europe. In Poland and in Lithuania, Lutheranism became established in the first half of the 16th century, while denominations such as Calvinism and the Czech Brethren became popular a little later.
