“Centenary of the birth of Ede Teller” collector coin


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”.

On the obverse of the coin, with reference to Ede Teller’s life work, there is a motif symbolising the most effective process of releasing nuclear energy, a diagram of the deuterium-tritium fusion reaction, while on the reverse there is a portrait 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.

10,000 coins may be struck, of which 6,000 are produced by the special proof technology.

The coin may be purchased from the Hungarian Mint Ltd. (Budapest, Könyves Kálmán körút 38) or from the shop in the Magyar Nemzeti Bank’s Visitor Centre. The coin is available at face value for three months from its date of issue.
