Hello from Hungary


Recommended Posts

Hi all there,

 

Some of you might know me from omnicoin or at least my collection: http://www.omnicoin.com/user_view.aspx?id=vajaho

 

I have been planning to join your forum for some time now, but finally I got two minutes on Friday afternoon to do the tedious job. I will help some newbies to identify coins. My specialty is the Árpád era of early Hungarian coinage, but generally I am also interested in World coins including African coins. Feel free to contact me anytime.

 

Next job is to join the paper guys, but just after finishing my coin scanning project (about two-three years from now)...

 

Bye for now,

 

Vajaho

Appreciate your joining our forum. A friend of mine a long time ago told me that Hungary was a great country to collect coins from, because it is a Central European country, with a lot of coinage, great designs and very affordable. For that reason Hungary gets a special place in my collection.

 

Not to mention that Hungary seems to have incredibly beautiful scenery on the banknotes:

or:

As well as some of the earliest dated but still quite collectible because affordable coinage:

What a great country. One I have not yet visited yet, because I am afraid if I go I might not want to come back. :ninja:

 

So welcome to the forum, hope you can share more of your collecting interests here, and note that some of us really like Magyar!

It is great! Hungary has long tradition of coinage and many people collect coins in Hungary. My collection is extremely small compared to others but I do some digitalization which can show the items to the World. My favourites are:

 

Hologram coin: http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=889788

The Ford-T model: http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=910535

One of the very few bi-metallic coins: http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=898630

The half coins: http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=898798, http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=898799

The holed soccer coin: http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=898553

One of the most interesting notes is the 20 fillér note (it is like a one cent paper note in the States) have you seen that?

I've been watching your OmniCoin collection grow from the very begging. It's always in the top 5 most popular.

 

Welcome to CoinPeople! :ninja:

 

Thanks akdrv,

 

My on-line collection is still growing, I am adding 10 coins a week. Unfortunately the initial scans were gray-scaled, I am still correcting them to color. Reason was simple, I could only print my catalog pages on bw laser printers at that time. My original goal with the scans is to update my coin database with nicer pictures and as a side effect I upload them to Omnicoin. To be honest I started with pencil draws I do not know if you know what I am speaking about. These do not worth uploading anywhere, but in the old times they were widely used (even in KM).
