On the reverse, in the rim, the coin carries the inscription “100. ROCZNICA PODPISANIA DEKRETU O ARCHIWACH PAŃSTWOWYCH” [100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIGNING OF THE STATE ARCHIVES DECREE]. The central part of the coin displays an image of a tree, with its right part being traditional, and its left part relating to the world of digital technology. On the one hand, the tree symbolises the continuity of tradition and rootedness in the past recorded in the archives. On the other hand, it constitutes a reference to the future, to the digitalisation of resources. The thirtythree leaves (traditional and “digital”) symbolise the contemporary network of state archives, and the centrally placed leaf in the crown of the tree – the Head Office of State Archives.
