Description

Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden is the oldest zoo park in Hungary and one of the oldest in the world. It has 1,072 animal species and is located within Városliget Park, unusually for a zoo, it is in the centre of the city. The zoo opened its doors on 9 August 1866. The area is a nature reserve, and has some valuable art nouveau buildings designed by Kornél Neuschloss and Károly Kós. More than 1,000 species are living there.

Front: The front features a swimming Eastern white pelican, an indigenous bird of the Carpathian Basin, with one of the emblematic buildings of the Zoo – the Australia House (the former Aviary) designed by Károly Kós – in the background. The front also features the silhouette of a pelican sitting on a naked tree. The mandatory design elements are also on the front: the inscription ‘MAGYARORSZÁG’, 2,000 numeral, the inscription ‘FORINT’, the mint mark ‘BP.’ as well as the year of issue ‘2016’.
Back:The back of the coin features a Southern white rhinoceros and her calf, facing each other, referring to the outstanding successes achieved by the Zoo in its propagation programme, as a result of which the first rhinoceros calf conceived through artificial insemination was born in Hungary. The background of the back features the Big Cliff of the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden (the work of sculptors Gyula Benke and Josef Botti, and engineer Gyula Végh). The inscription “150 ÉVES AZ ÁLLATKERT” in the upper part of the back and the years 1866-2016 in the lower part refer to the 150th anniversary of the Zoo. The signature mark of the designer, Gábor Kereszthury, is in the lower left corner of the coin.
