Series: Hungary - Commemorative 2000 forint coins
Raoul Bott was an American mathematician of Hungarian-Austrian origin, best known for his achievements in several areas of geometry, and many mathematical principles bear his name. In 2000, in the 77th year of his life, he was awarded the Wolf Prize in Mathematics for his discoveries in deep topology and differential geometry. To mark the 100th anniversary of his birth, the MNB issues commemorative coins as the third addition to the 'Wolf Prize-Winning Mathematicians of Hungarian Descent' series.
