The reverse of the coin features a portrait of Agnieszka Dowbor-Muśnicka with a quotation carved by an inmate in one of the cells at Aleja Szucha prison in Warsaw: “It is easy to talk about Poland. It is more difficult to work for it and even more difficult to die for it. And the most difficult is to suffer for it”. The same inscription can be found at the Palmiry cemetery.
