In 1993 the Magyar Nemzeti Bank issued a series of new forint coins for circulation featuring modern materials and a uniform appearance. In 1996 the new 100 forint bicolour coin and in 2009 the new 200 forint bimetal coin were added to circulated coins. From 2012 the obverse side of all the coins of the series bears the inscription „MAGYARORSZÁG” and the coat of arms of Hungary and symbols specific to Hungary (the image of a protected Hungarian plant or animal, and the image of the Chain Bridge voted for by citizens). Coins with the inscription “Magyar Köztársaság” continue to function as legal tender.

 

The reverse side of the coins bears the denomination. The obverse and reverse side of the coins were designed by István Kósa and István Bartos, respectively. The only exceptions are the bicolour hundred and bimetal two hundred forint coins, the obverse and reverse sides of which were both designed by István Kósa.

 

Forint coins in circulation are minted by the Hungarian Mint Limited.
