  • the size of the reproduction is outside the reference range specified in the Annex of the MNB Decree on the reproductions of forint coins, or
  • the size of the reproduction is within the reference range specified in the Annex of the MNB Decree on reproductions of forint coins, provided that
    1. its material composition is different from the material composition specified for the specific diameter range in the Annex of the MNB Decree on reproductions of forint coins, and
    2. the combination of the diameter and edge height of the reproduction is clearly and unambiguously outside the diameter and edge height ranges specified in the Annex of the MNB Decree on reproductions of forint coins.
