The article describes a monetary attempt of reinforcing the sense of belonging of the Ziemie Odzyskane to Poland by issuing of a commemorative coin Byliśmy, Jesteśmy, Będziemy in the year 1970. The presented ten-zloty coin refers, in its symbolism, to the Piast dynasty and its connections with the above mentioned lands. The choice of the coats of arms of seven voivodship towns: Koszalin, Gdańsk, Szczecin, Olsztyn, Zielona Góra, Wrocław and Opole on the reverse is often outwardly inexplicable. Heraldic inaccuracies were the coin’s strength and showed that historic reality is not as important as the overtone of a precisely chosen image. Also the eagle on the obverse taken from Casimir’s III the Great seal does not fi t the discussed lands incorporated by Poland after the Second World War but thanks to its characteristics and beauty it must have been associated through the king with a strong and independent country.
