The MNB is issuing a silver commemorative coin to celebrate next year’s FIFA World Cup. The coin is part of the FIFA’s official commemorative coin programme. The silver commemorative coin of 2013 was designed by Áron Bohus. This is the first of forint-denominated football commemorative coins bearing the official emblem of the FIFA World Cup.

The centre of the obverse of the commemorative coin has the inscription ‘MAGYARORSZÁG’, the value numeral ‘3000’, the inscription ‘FORINT’ as well as the mint mark ‘BP.’ alongside the mint year ‘2013’ in four horizontal lines. In the background, the outlines of a stylised globe and a football, drawn on each other, are depicted.

The circular legend on the edge of the reverse reads ‘FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL 2014’. The left of the reverse bears the representation of a football player tackling a ball with energy. The official emblem of the FIFA World Cup, in a field bordered by a quarter circle, is depicted in the centre on the right of the coin. The initials of designer Áron Bohus are on the lower part of the field bordered by the quarter circle.
The collector coin is struck in .925 fine silver. It weighs 12.5 grams, its diameter is 30 mm and it has a milled edge.
A total of 5,000 pieces of the commemorative coin can be made in proof finish.

The ‘FIFA World CUP Brazil, 2014’ collector coin can be purchased at the coin shop of the Hungarian Mint in the Magyar Nemzeti Bank’s Visitor Centre (8–9 Szabadság tér, Budapest) and on the Mint’s website (www.penzvero.hu), where a number of collector coins produced from gold, silver and non-ferrous metals issued earlier are also on sale.
