The Magyar Nemzeti Bank (National Bank of Hungary) has issued a gold coin with a face value of HUF 50,000 to commemorate the 425th anniversary of the first complete translation of the Bible into Hungarian.
The obverse of the collector coins features a representation of the Vizsoly Reformed Church. On the right, the coin is inscribed with ‘MAGYARORSZÁG’, with the value numeral and the inscription ‘FORINT’ placed below it in two horizontal lines. The mint year ‘2015’ and the mint mark ‘BP’ are positioned on the left of the representation.
The reverse bears a representation of a ‘V’ initial in a square frame. Outside the frame, the inscriptions from the left to the right read ‘425 ÉVES A VIZSOLYI BIBLIA’ and ’1590 – 2015’. The initials of designer Andrea Horváth are placed on the lower edge, in the centre.
The 50,000 forint coin is struck to the same standards as the old Hungarian gold florin in .986 fine gold. It weighs 3.491 grams and it is 20 mm in diameter. It has a milled edge.
