The Magyar Nemzeti Bank has issued a commemorative coin as the second installation in a series honouring the Nobel laureates of Hungary. With a face value of HUF 3,000, the silver coin was dedicated to the memory of Jenő Wigner on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his being awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. The first part of the series is the ‘Albert Szent-Györgyi’ commemorative coin issued last year.

The lower legend on the obverse of the collector coin bears the inscription ‘MAGYARORSZÁG’. On the left, arranged in three horizontal lines below one other are the value numeral ‘3000’, the inscription ‘FORINT’, the mint mark ‘BP’ and the mint year ‘2013’. The right side of the coin features a stylised depiction of the atomic structure.
The lower legend on the edge of the reverse bears the inscription ‘NOBEL-DÍJ • 1963 • WIGNER JENŐ’. The bust of Jenő Wigner is positioned on the right side. Arranged horizontally in two lines to the left of the bust is the equation of the Wigner-Eckart theorem. The coin features the master mark of designer Fanni Vékony to the right of the bust.
Minted in .925 sterling silver, the oval-shaped commemorative coin weighs 12.5 grams. It is 30x25 mm in diameter and has a smooth edge.
The mintage limit of the coins is 5,000, of which 3,000 can be produced in a special proof finish.
The ‘Jenő Wigner’ commemorative coin can be purchased in the webshop of the Hungarian Mint’s website (www.penzvero.hu), which also offers numerous, previously issued collector coins made from gold, silver and non-ferrous metals, as well as at the ceremonial issuance of the coin (Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 1051 Budapest, Széchenyi István tér 9).
