COLLECTOR COIN ISSUANCE TO MARK THE DOUBLE ANNIVERSARY OF PÁL SZINYEI MERSE

The MNB will issue a silver collector coin of 10,000 forints and its non-ferrous metal version with a face value of 2,000 forints to honour the 175th anniversary of Pál Szinyei Merse’s birth and the 100th anniversary of his death. The collector coins, to pay tribute to the groundbreaker of the modern Hungarian painting, who established his own school, come as additions to the thematic series presenting the outstanding figures of Hungarian visual arts. The coin was designed by sculptor Borbála Szanyi.
