Poland 10 złotych March 25, 1994
Thanks to Piotr from Trzebnica, Poland
Mieszko I (c. 935 – May 25, 992) was a duke of the Polans and the first historical ruler of Poland. Member of the Piast dynasty, he was son of the legendary Siemomysł, grandchild of Lestek and father to Bolesław Chrobry, the first crowned prince of Poland, and Świętosława-Sygryda, a Nordic queen. Mieszko also appeared as "Dagome" in a papal document from about 1085 AD called "Dagome iudex", which mentions a gift of land to the Pope almost a hundred years earlier.
