Description of obverse and reverse
The front shows a bare tree in a grassy, wind-swept landscape, with a key motif from Pilinszky’s poem “Apocryph”: the rising sun, like a wide-open eye with a magnified iris and pupil. The back bears a half-portrait of Pilinszky, showing a thoughtful melancholy poet leaning against a tree.
A brief annotation
Pilinszky’s poetry was influenced by his concentration camp experiences, his Christian existentialism, his objective lyricism and his Catholic faith. Pilinszky draws his readers into a comprehensive world of personality, desire, love, guilt and jeopardy, his language is full of passion. The coin is a worthy and incredibly beautiful transcript of his oeuvres.
