Description

Béla Spányi (19 March 1852, Pest – 12 June 1914, Budapest) was a Hungarian painter who specialized in landscapes. He studied in Vienna, Munich and Paris and spent much of his time in Szolnok, a popular gathering place for artists. He was one of the assistants who worked with Árpád Feszty to produce his monumental cyclorama Arrival of the Hungarians.

Front:The collector coin features a half-figure portrait of Béla Spányi on the right of the obverse. The value numeral and the inscription ‘FORINT’ are placed horizontally to the left of the portrait. The inscription below the portrait in the middle reads ‘MAGYARORSZÁG’. The mint year ‘2014’ and the mint mark ‘BP’ are positioned below the inscription on the right edge of the coin.
Back:The reverse of the coin bears a detail of ‘Willows’, a painting by Béla Spányi. A section of the painting, bordered by a rectangle, is raised from the level of the coin. The horizontal inscriptions below the detail of the painting read ‘SPÁNYI BÉLA’ and ‘1832-1914’. The initials of designer Enikő Szöllőssy are positioned below the detail, on the right edge of the coin.
