Due to the high quantity of coins being issued (in contrast to the past), with 2 million coins being issued for each letter, i.e. 12 million coins, availability of the coins by way of making change cannot be guaranteed by the MNB at its retail cash desk or the Hungarian Mint Ltd. at its coin shop.

The thematic side of the commemorative 5-forint coin was created based on the graphic design of Mónika Gyuró, whose designs were the most popular in the public vote held in February.
