The Magyar Nemzeti Bank is issuing a non-ferrous metal collector coin to mark the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the Hungarian Maltese Charity Service.
The obverse of the collector coin bears a representation of Saint Elizabeth handing a bread to a hunch-backed old man. The upper legend on the right edge of the coin reads ‘MAGYARORSZÁG’, with the value numeral ‘2000’ and the inscription ‘FORINT’ placed below the legend. The mint year ‘2014’ and the mint mark ‘BP’ are positioned in a lower legend in the centre.
The reverse of the coin features a representation of a globe, with the emblem of the Hungarian Maltese Charity Service and the year ‘1989’ above the emblem shown in the foreground. The inscription on the upper edge of the coin reads ‘MAGYAR MÁLTAI SZERETETSZOLGÁLAT’. The motto of the Hungarian Maltese Charity Service ‘A HIT VÉDELME ÉS A SZEGÉNYEK SZOLGÁLATA’ [Defence of the Faith and Assistance to the Poor] appears in a lower legend. The upper and lower legends are separated, on the left, by the initials of designers Orsolya Ráski and Dániel Nagy and, on the right, by a dot.
The collector coin is made from an alloy of 75% copper and 25% nickel. It weighs 23.7 grams, measures 37 mm in diameter and has a milled edge.
The mintage limit of the collector coin is 10,000 pieces, of which 6,000 pieces can be struck in proof finish.
The collector coin is distributed by the Hungarian Mint Ltd and will be on sale at a price equal to the face value (HUF 2,000) from 14 August 2014 at the coin shop of the Hungarian Mint (Budapest, V. ker., Hold u. 17.) and in the Mint’s webshop (http://penzvero.hu/), where a number of collector coins produced from gold, silver and non-ferrous metals issued earlier are also on sale.
