The National Bank of Hungary (MNB) has released 2015-12-14 its new 20,000-forint banknotes.

The colour of the banknote has changed a bit, turning into greenish-blue in the middle. Furthermore, the banknote has become protected by special fibers and safety threads.

The largest Hungarian banknote has kept its size and the portrait of legendary 19th-century statesman Ferenc Deák (1803-1876) also remains on the front side. Ferenc Deák is remembered in Hungary  as the “Wise Man of the Nation” due to his major political role in the creation of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in 1867.

The first 20,000-forint banknote was issued by MNB as far back as 15 April 2001, and it has changed only once so far when it was extended with an additional security layer in 2009.
