Soccer Coins From Polish Mint

2.61 billion zlotys is how much Poland's television advertising market was worth in the first three quarters of this year, according to Starlink media agency.

The Polish Mint company has launched a new series of silver collector's coins entitled Kings of Football featuring the greatest soccer players in history.

On the flip side, the coins bear the logo of the series (Kings of Football using a stylized font and featuring a crown and two lions), the emblem of Armenia, which is the issuer of the coins, and the denomination of 100 drams. The reverse features the faces of the "Kings" in bas-relief, depicted against a backdrop featuring a moving football which leaves a trail behind it, like a comet tail. The series is issued by the Central Bank of Armenia, while Polish Mint is the producer and distributor of the coins.

The first coin, with the famous Brazilian soccer player Pele on it, was released in October, followed in November by Portugal's Eusebio, who visited Poland on the occasion. The next coin will be a tribute to Lev Yashin, considered by many the best goalkeeper of all times. The fourth Kings of Football coin will be released in January with Franz Beckenbauer on it.

Over the next five years, the Polish Mint is planning to produce 20 Kings of Football coins featuring David Beckham, Johan Cruyff, Zinedine Zidane, Zbigniew Boniek, Bobby Charlton, Roberto Baggio, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Gerd Mueller, Georghe Haji, Pavel Nedved and Leo Messi.
