Hungary 5 Pengo (Szent Istvan) 1938
This is a large, bold coin depicting Saint Stephen I, King of Hungary, who reigned from 1000 to 1038AD. It is made of silver and contains 0.514 troy ounces of the precious metal.
Catalog values run like this:
worn: $18 US dollars approximate catalog value

The coin in our main picture, with front and back both showing, carries an orange-brown toning. Some collectors seek out toned coins and pay premiums for them because they like the added interest. Most collectors, however, shun toned coins and prefer the normal white silver color, as in our secondary picture.
