Here we will talk about a 1894 Hungary 10 filler coin. There were 49.463 million of these produced in 1894 and their composition metal is nickel. On the obverse or front of this coin is what appears to be a royal crown. On the top of it are the words: Magyar Kiralyi Valtopenz. This means Hungarian royal money of exchange. During this time period it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire but struck its own coins. The back has the 10 Filler value surrounded by a wreath. This coin’s weight is is 3 grams. Our example in particular would grade very fine.
1892 was the last year that the Austro-Hungarian Empire used the Gulden as its currency. It then switched to the Krone which was a necessary step to going onto the gold standard. This 1894 coin that we have was a subunit of the Krone (100 of which would have equaled one krone).
Here in this post we will examine a 1969 10 Filler coin from Hungary. It is made from the metal aluminum and is a lite .5999 grams. This coin is small in its diameter at 18.5 millimeters. The front has an image of a dove bird in flight with a tree branch in its beak. Above the dove is Magyar Nepkoztarsasag which means Hungarian People in English. The back side has simply the denomination of 10 Filler on it. There were 50.76 million of these struck in the year 1969. Our coin below would likely grade in almost uncirculated condition.
The currency of the country of Hungary is the Forint and it has been around since 1946. It was started in response to the worst case of recorded inflation that occurred in recorded history (this was in regards to former currency which was called the Pengo). Going back to the Forint, its subunit is the Filler which actually has no use anymore because of inflation. 100 Filler = 1 Forint.
At one time Hungary’s currency was known as the Pengo and was printed starting in the year 1927 until its demise due to inflation in 1946. In fact inflation was so rampant there after WWII that the Pengo takes first place as the worst inflationary currency in modern history.
The following are pictures of an 1944 OT (5) Pengo bank note from Hungary. At the top one will notice the words: “Vöröshadsereg Parancsnoksága” which means Red Army Headquarters. So this bill was printed when the Soviets occupied Hungary during the later part of WWII. This note is grey with red lettering. Its condition would be likely very fine as it has some stains on the back but does fold for the most part.
