Gold collector coin issued in 2014 in commemoration of the Gold Florin of Queen Mary, piefort version

This gold coin is the third part of the series "Mediaeval Hungarian Gold Florins 1305-1525" issued by the Magyar Nemzeti Bank (Central Bank of Hungary). The gold collector series started in 2012 with the gold coin of Charles I and was followed in 2013 by the gold coin of Louis the Great.

The 2014 year coin depicts the designs of the gold florin of Queen Mary, incorporating the common Hungarian-Anjou coat of arms (obverse) and the standing figure of King St.Ladislaus (reverse). During her reign between 1382-1395, Mary continued the coinage of his father, Louis the Great. However, a cross in a circle, which was used exclusively on the coins minted under Queen Mary's reign made her coins different to those of her father. This so called mint mark has also been illustrated on the collector coin by the designer Soltra E. Tamás.

The Magyar Nemzeti Bank also issued a piefort version of this coin, with edge lettering, which makes the piefort coin different to the normal one ducat weight coin. The edge lettering shows the inscription +MARIA · DEI · GRATIA · REGINA · VNGARIE (Mary, by the Grace of God, Queen of Hungary).
