The złoty (pronounced [ˈzwɔtɨ]  ( listen);[1] sign: ; code: PLN) literally meaning "golden", is the currency of Poland. The modern złoty is subdivided into 100 groszy (singular: grosz, alternative plural forms: grosze; groszy). The recognized English form of the word is zloty, plural zloty or zlotys.[2] The currency sign zł, is composed by U+007A zlatin small letter z + U+0142 łlatin small letter l with stroke.

As a result of inflation in the early 1990s, the currency underwent redenomination. Thus, on 1 January 1995, 10,000 old złotych (PLZ) became one new złoty (PLN).
