New 10 forint and 20 forint circulation coins in honour of everyday heroes standing their ground during the emergency

The Magyar Nemzeti Bank is issuing new collector versions of the 10 and 20 forint coins in recognition of, and to express respect for, the dedicated work of our fellow citizens who played an outstanding role in the efforts made during the coronavirus pandemic.

In line with the practices adopted in recent years in issuing commemorative versions of circulation coins, so-called first day sets in special gift-wrapped packages containing each denomination will also be available at the coin shop and webshop of Magyar Pénzverő Zrt.

With a view to collectors’ interest the new 10 and 20 forint commemorative coins will, for the first time ever, be distributed by the Mint in collectible rolls in wrapping bearing the name of the MNB. The limited edition rolls will contain 50 pieces of the brilliant uncirculated commemorative versions of the 10 forint or 50 pieces of 20 forint coins.
