NGC CERTIFIED :

The demand for Certified European (World) Gold Coins is accelerating fast - as more investors and collectors become aware of the scarcity of these coins - especially in an "AU"certified state. These coins usually do not get graded above “Almost Uncirculated” due to the wide circulation they had.
This is a very attractive example of this type, with original gold patina and good detail.
The "AU 55" Gold Coin shown Encapsulated and Graded by NGC is the actual coin you will receive!

COIN INFORMATION :

122 YEARS OLD, FROM THE TIME OF PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND in 1889 !

Many of Hungary's coins have used the same denominations as Austrian coins, because of its close association (part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918). The 8 Forints / 20 Francs is one of the many varied denominations of Gold Coin which Hungary has produced in its long history. Between 1870 and 1892 Hungary produced two different coin types, each of which carried face values in two different monetary systems. This is because these coins were "trade coinage" intended for international use as bullion coins. These types were the 20 Francs / 8 Forints (THIS COIN) and its sibling the 10 Francs / 4 Forints.
They are internationally accepted and respected and are cherished word-wide for their fine gold content, excellent minting and true historical significance.

These Gold Coins are extremely popular among Coin and Bullion collectors and investors!
