Description of obverse and reverse
In the outlined central field, the front features a bird’s eye view of the plenary chamber of the Parliament of Hungary. The back shows details of the Holy Crown of Hungary and of the Hungarian flag, with heraldic crosshatching for the national colours. Around the edge the legend reads “COVENANT BETWEEN HUNGARIANS OF THE PAST, THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE”, a quote from the National Avowal to be found in the Fundamental Law of Hungary.
A brief annotation
The Fundamental Law of Hungary is a living framework, which expresses the fundamental aspects of the will, existence and mission of the nation. It forms the basis of Hungary’s legal system and is the first written constitution in Hungarian history that was adopted by a democratically-elected legislature. The coin was issued to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the entry into force of the Fundamental Law.
