Description of obverse and reverse
The front shows a half-profile image of a Hungarian agár looking left. The silhouette of the head and body clearly presents the characteristics of the breed. The back depicts the dog hunting on a grassy plain with a mounted hunter in the background.
A brief annotation
The coin is third part of the collector coin series „Hungarian herding and hunting breeds”, which were declared a national treasure and raised the status of Hungarikum. The origin of this breed can be traced to the 3rd millennium BC. It was brought to the Carpathian Basin with the Hungarian tribes, which used these sighthounds for hunting. The Hungarian agár radiates a sense of srength and elegance and is an extremily smart breed. Its depiction on the coin is a worthy transcript of these characteristics.
