“Telephone Herald” collector coin


On 15 February 2008 the Magyar Nemzeti Bank issued a cupronickel collector coin with a face value of HUF 1,000 called “Telephone Herald”.

On the obverse of the square-shaped collector coin there are the compulsory details – the legend REPUBLIC OF HUNGARY, the face value, the year of minting, and the mint mark –, while on the reverse the inventor Tivadar Puskás is shown while using the telephone newspaper.

The coin was designed by Áron Bohus.

The collector coin is made of cupronickel (75% copper, 25% nickel), weighs 14 grams, is 28.43 mm x 28.43 mm, and has a smooth edge.

25,000 coins may be struck, of which 15,000 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.
