With the non-ferrous commemorative coin entitled “Az égig érő fa” (The Giant Tree), in 2021 the Magyar Nemzeti Bank launched a new series of coins dedicated to presenting Hungarian folk tales, based on an animated series. There were two reasons for launching this series: first, the Hungarikum Committee added the animated series “Hungarian Folk Tales” to the list of Hungarikums, and second, the Kecskemét Animation Studio, which created the series, celebrated the 50th anniversary of its foundation on 23 June 2021. For its presentation of these treasures, the series has been registered as a Hungarikum, with the following explanation: “The distinctive visual and musical world embodied in Hungarian folktales and the accompanying narrative make this animated series a unique work. The kindness, humour, cunning and gaiety of the folktales faithfully reflect the spirit, emotions and true character of the Hungarians. In addition to the above, the truths and fundamental values presented in the episodes of the animated series ‘Hungarian Folk Tales’, which has earned great recognition within Hungary and abroad, make the series worthy of inclusion in the Collection of Hungarikums.
