Minted by the Hungarian Mint, the first commemorative coins issued by Hungary earlier this year commemorate Zsuzsanna Kossuth—a pioneer of the nursing profession—on the 200th anniversary of her birth.
The coins are available in two versions—a .925 silver Proof 10,000 forint denomination weighing 31.46 grams and measuring 38.61 mm with a mintage of 5,000 pieces, and a cupro-nickel 2,000 forint weighing 30.80 grams and measuring 38.61 mm with a mintage of 6,000 pieces. Prices are $62.50 and $19.50, respectively.
The coins’ designs, by Ildiko Eross, show a scene of a military field hospital on the obverse while the reserve depicts Kossuth’s portrait.
