Description of obverse and reverse

The reverse of the coin bears the denomination.
A brief annotation
The coin – together with another five HUF-5 coins – was issued to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the introduction of the Hungarian currency, the FORINT. The six coins altogether put near each other form the word FORINT, and also their backround depictions expose the headquarter building of the central bank as issuing authority.
