Though a member of the European Union (EU) as of 2010, Poland still uses the zloty as its currency. The term "zloty" was first used in the 1400s to refer to any gold coin. The zloty was recalculated in 1995 to account for inflation, and 1,000 zlotys, or zlotych in Polish, became a single zloty. As of August 2010, one U.S. dollar is worth 3.13 zlotys. The symbol for the zloty is the abbreviation of the Polish form (a variation of the first two letters), which is a "z", followed by an "l" with a stroke, or a small backwards slash, that runs through its middle. Microsoft Word allows you to copy and paste the zloty symbol by using a few simple steps.
Click on the XE World currency symbols link (see Resouces).
Scroll three-fourths of way down until you see the Polish zloty. The page is presented alphabetically.
Copy the second zloty symbol, which is in the "Font: Code2000" column (press the "CTRL" and "c" keys simultaneously to copy). This is a Microsoft Word-compatible text. You could also copy the two options to the right of the "Code 2000," either the "Tahoma" or the "Arial Unicode MS." The symbol is a combination of a "z" and an "l" with a short backwards slash through it.
Paste the zloty symbol into your document by pressing the "CTRL" and "v" keys at the same time. Format to your preferred font.
