Description

Saint Martin of Tours (b. 316 or 317), Bishop of Tours, was born in the Roman town of Savaria (present-day Szombathely). To this day, he stands as an example of goodwill, brotherly love, willingness to help those in need, solidarity and simplicity. He remains one of Europe’s most revered saints.

Front: The main motif on the front is an ancient Christian lamp hanger from Savaria likely from the period of Saint Martin, which is now on display at the City Museum of Savaria. The front has the mandatory elements, such as the legend “MAGYARORSZÁG”, the denomination “2 000” and “FORINT”, the mint mark “BP.” and the date “2016”.
Back:The back depicts one of the saint’s most well-known deeds: Martin cutting his cloak in half, in the style of a stained-glass window. (Sources report that as a solider stationed in Gaul, in the bitter cold Saint Martin cut his cloak in two with a sword and gave half to a freezing beggar.) The small master mark of designer Ferenc Lebó is found below the central motif. The legend running around the entire edge of the coin reads “SZENT MÁRTON SZÜLETÉSÉNEK 1700. ÉVFORDULÓJA”. The first and last letters of the legend are separated with a “+”.
