In the first hall of our exhibition representing the history of Hungarian coin minting we follow up the changes of Hungarian money from the coins of King St. Stefan to the point when the country was divided into 3 parts. The showcases represent the events of various small periods through coin minting. Thus we can see the inflation following Stefan, the golden forint introduced to contrabalance the inflation, the coin minting of king Matthias, and the different coins of the royal Hungary and Transylvania. continue
