Hungary issues collector coin marking EU presidency

The National Bank of Hungary (NBH) will issue a collector coin marking the start of the Hungarian presidency of the Council of the European Union on July 1, the bank said on Friday.

The NBH will issue the coin in silver and non-ferrous metal versions with face values of 7,500 forints and 3,000 forints, respectively.

The obverse of the coin features representations of Hungary’s parliament building, the Tihany Abbey and the Millennium Monument above an abstract, dotted representation of an assembly hall.

The reverse of the coin shows the national coat of arms surrounded by a stylised network of interlocking semi-circles, emblemising diplomatic relations, and twelve stars symbolising the EU.
