50 forint - Year of the Families
Series: Hungary - Commemorative 50 forint coins
The Hungarian Government made 2018 the Year of the Family. As part of the programme series, measures to support families, their publicity, promotion and the representation of family values will be given a particularly highlighted role. In honour of the Year of the Family, the Magyar Nemzeti Bank will issue a new HUF 50 circulation coin, as well as a silver and a non-ferrous metal coin with a face value of HUF 10,000 and HUF 2,000, respectively, on 25 May 2018. The face value side of the 50-forint coins to be issued is identical with the denomination side of the 50-forint coin currently in circulation; however, replacing the usual saker falcon the thematic side features the Year of the Family logo with a stylised representation of a family in the middle. The logo is positioned within a frame formed by the upper legend “MAGYARORSZÁG” and the mint year 2018, which place the Year of the Family programme in space and time.
