By issuing the collector coin the MNB will pay homage to the heroic efforts and the sacrifice made by Hungarian soldiers on the anniversary marking the end of the Great War.
Front: The dominant design element on the obverse is a fraction of a world map with Europe as the centre, which features stars and settlement names in boxes where the most significant battles took place involving Hungarian soldiers. The conflicting powers and the neutral countries are differentiated by three specific surface marking on the mint. To facilitate the comprehension of the map the coin features the lettering ‘MAGYAR KATONÁK A NAGY HÁBORÚBAN’ (Hungarian soldiers in the Great War) in a box placed in the inner ring. The compulsory design elements of collector coins are in the outer ring: the lettering MAGYARORSZÁG in the upper arc, the denominations 2 000 FORINT in the lower arc, the BP. mint mark and the mint year 2018 on the centre line of the coin.
Back:The outer ring structure also appears on the reverse of the coins. As the central motif on the reverse, a scene in the trenches is shown depicting the trench warfare, the tragedy of war, the heroism and comradery of the soldiers; features that were so typical of World War I. The trenches are positioned as a cross which also suggests paying tribute. To the right of the representation Bitó Balázs’s master mark is shown, a goldsmith’s, who designed the collector coin.
