Collector coins made of non-precious metals have been issued since 1980.
The first base metal coins were issued to the occasion of the first common Hungarian-soviet space flight in 1980. While in the early 80’s the number of the base metal issues exceeded the number of the silver or gold coins, between 1991-1998 only precious metal issues were released. In 1998 came base metal again, when the 1848/49 revolution had its 150th anniversary. In 2005, the central bank started to issue a new series struck of nickel, with the topic: "The role of Hungarians in technical and scientific progress around the world". Each part of the series has the same form (squared), also symbolising the common topic.
Special commemorative circulation coins enlarge the base metal numismatic product-list, too. The central bank changed one side of some existing circulating coins, on which outstanding Hungarian personalities or important events, organisations are depicted and draw the attention of the public. The maximum mintage of such commemorative circulation coins is notably larger than the issue limit of the "usual" collector coins, nevertheless, they loose their role of payment instruments, since people keep them away from payment transactions. The "first day mint packaging" usually contains such commemorative circulation coins (in a very limited quantity of 12,000 pieces), which contain coins struck on the first day when production started (see in other packagings).
The prices contain PE-capsule packaging. Etuis can be ordered separately.
