Token: Hungary BUEK Happy New Year (B.U.E.K.)
Token: Hungary BUEK Happy New Year (B.U.E.K.)

The definitive feature of this token, and other tokens like it, is the acronym B.U.E.K., also seen without the stops: BUEK. The acronym stands for Boldog Új Evet Kivánunk or We Wish You a Happy New Year in Hungarian. There is an interesting page on these interesting tokens over at World of Coins [PRESS HERE], and a full page of related tokens at Zseton Galeria [PRESS HERE].

They are 'party tokens' used during New Year celebrations.

As to value, we looked for some recent auction results and even for some fixed price sales, but could not find any. That means we have no firm backing for our price estimates. However, consider:

1 - They are modern tokens, made within the past few decades
2 - They are made of non-precious base metal
3 - Every years thousands and thousands are produced for hundreds of celebrations
4 - The collector base is small

From these 4 considerations, our estimated values are:

MOST MODERN BUEK TOKENS
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $1
fully uncirculated: $3

OLDER BUEK TOKENS (before 1950) WITH QUALITY DESIGN
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $15
