The brass version of the Gold Florin of King Sigismund (1387-1437)
 
 
With the issue of King Sigismund’s gold florin, the Magyar Nemzeti Bank continues its series “Medieval Hungarian Gold Florins,” launched in 2012 with the gold florin of Charles I (2012), Louis I (2013) and Mary, Queen of Hungary (2014). The front of the coin depicts the coat of arms of Sigismund’s first type of gold florin, as designed by sculptor Tamás E. Soltra. The back depicts Saint Ladislaus holding a battle-axe in his right hand and the orb in his left hand, with the letters M–O by his sides, the mark of Buda Chamberlain Mikes Jemnisti, and the number 13 between the legs of the saint.
