Overview - HUF

The Hungarian Forint is the currency used in Hungary and its ISO code is HUF. It is officially subdivided into 100 Fillér, but due to inflation and the low worth of the Forint the circulation of Fillér was abandoned in 1996. The name Forint comes from the Italian city of Florence where golden coins were minted from 1252 called Fiorino d’Oro. Hungary began using its own gold-based currency from 1325, which were called Florentinus.


The Forint in its current form has been the currency of Hungary since 1946. It remained relatively stable for several years post-war, but started to lose its purchasing power as the Hungarian state socialist economic system lost its competitiveness during the 1970s and 1980s. After democratic change in 1989-90, there was hyper inflation for around 3 years, before significant economic reforms helped restabilise it.


As part of Hungary’s integration into the European Union, it is expected the Forint will be replaced by the Euro, although this depends on the economic situation, and is unlikely to happen before 2020.
