Hungary 10 Forint banknote of 1975

19 Nov 2019  Tue

Hungary is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Its capital, Budapest, is bisected by the Danube River. Its cityscape is studded with architectural landmarks from Buda’s medieval Castle Hill and grand neoclassical buildings along Pest’s Andrássy Avenue to the 19th-century Chain Bridge.

The forint is the currency of Hungary. It was formerly divided into 100 filler. The forint's name comes from the city of Florence, where gold coins called fiorino d'oro were minted.

Today we are looking at a 10 Florint banknote issued in 1975. The obverse depicts Coat of Arms in centre bottom and the denominational value in centre top and to left; to right is the portrait of Petofi Sandor, a Hungarian poet and liberal revolutionary who is considered as the national poet, and was one of the key figures of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848.

The reverse depicts a river scene in centre. This note is predominantly in green colour.
