The initials of designer Andrea Horváth feature on the rim of the coin, below the inscription.

The gold collector coin is struck in .999 fine gold. It weighs 0.5 gram and it is 11 mm in diameter and has a smooth edge.

The mintage limit of the gold collector coins is 10,000 pieces in proof finish.
