On 16 January 2008 the Magyar Nemzeti Bank issued a silver collector coin with a face value of HUF 5,000 called “Centenary of the birth of Ede Teller”.

The coin was designed by Mihály Fritz.
The coin is made of .925 fine silver, weighs 31.46 grams, and has a diameter of 38.61 mm and a reeded edge.
