The reverse of the square-shaped silver coin with a face value of 10 złoty features the image of Krzysztof Klenczon against the background of a fragment of a vinyl disc.

Designer: Sebastian Mikołajczak
The obverse of the coin carries stylised images of a record player tonearm and a fragment of a vinyl record. The record contains a fragment of the song “Biały krzyż”. The music to that song was composed by Krzysztof Klenczon, while the lyrics were written by Janusz Kondratowicz. Krzysztof Klenczon dedicated this song – which has gained cult status – to his father, a soldier of the Polish Home Army and one of the “Accursed Soldiers” of the anti- Communist underground, who was forced to hide for many years under an assumed name. The song “Biały krzyż” won the first prize at the Opole Music Festival on 27 June 1969.
