A freedom fighter against the tyranny of the Habsburg Empire, Lajos (Louis) Kossuth rose from humble gentry roots to become regent-president of the Kingdom of Hungary in the 19th century. Kossuth’s inspiring 1851 and 1852 speeches in America drew widespread acclaim, and his is one of only two non-Americans to have a bust in the U.S. Capitol building.

Struck in 50% silver, this 5 Forint issue profiles Kossuth on the reverse with his lifespan of 1802-1894. The obverse features the Kossuth coat of arms flanked by the coin’s denomination. Sure to be a conversation starter in your collection, order this affordable silver coin today.
