Description of obverse and reverse
Obverse: a shield inspired by the 2nd type of gold forint coin issued by King Albert, parted quarterly with the Hungarian stripes, the Czeh lion, the Moravian eagle and the Austrian band. The coat-of-arms is surrounded by a selection of mint and mint master marks found on the gold coins of that era. 

Reverse: depiction of an exact copy of the reverse side of the 1st type of gold forint coin issued by King Albert, depicting a standing figure of King St.Ladislaus, with a H and lamb combination of mint- and master mark on his both sides.
A brief annotation
Part of the series of Medieval Hungarian Gold Forints. The Latin edge lettering of the coin makes the inscription in English “Albert, by grace of God, King of Hungary” 

“H” on the reverse means the mint location (Hermannstadt, present-day Sibiu, RO), while the lamb is the emblem of the responsible chamberlain, János Lemmel.
