Description

Born of the House of Anjou in Naples, Charles Robert (Caroberto) was crowned King Charles I of Hungary in 1301, when the House of Árpád died out. His name is associated with numerous monetary reforms, of which perhaps the most important was the introduction of gold coinage. First mention of Hungarian gold forints occurs in 1326 and thus researchers theorise that the first coins were minted in 1325. The back of this silver coin bears a stylised lily of House of Anjou, from the golden lily coin of Florence, the fiorino d’oro, which is also the origin of the name “forint”.

Front: The front of the coin has the mandatory elements (denomination 500 Forint, Magyar Köztársaság legend, BP. mint mark and the 1992 date), along with the master mark.
Back:The back bears the legend “KÁROLY RÓBERT EMLÉKÉRE”, the dates of his reign (historians consider 1308 as the starting year of his reign, when he was elected king by the national diet). The centre field of the back of this coin features a stylised lily of the House of Anjou, based on the golden lily coin of Florence, the fiorino d’oro.
