Hungary new 5,000-forint note reported

Hungary_MNB_5000_forint_0000.00.00_PNL_f
Hungary_MNB_5000_forint_0000.00.00_PNL_r
This undated, unsigned, and unnumbered 5,000-forint note is similar to P199. I personally examined the note at the recent show in Valkenburg and can confirm that it is intaglio printed on high-quality security paper complete with watermarks, holographic stripe, and other security features.

Rumor was that a pack of unfinished notes was stolen from the printer (Pénzjegynyomda Rt.) and that this denomination will be issued shortly as the second member of the new note family started with the introduction of the 10,000-forint on 2 September 2014.

However, I recently received the following email from the bank's Communication and Protocol Department: "The undated, unsigned, and unnumbered 5,000-forint note published on your website is a trial print of the previous years used for testing purposes, representing no value. This banknote specimen is not part of the new forint banknote series issued by Magyar Nemzeti Bank (the central bank of Hungary)."

On 2 September 2014, the Magyar Nemze Bank released a revised 10,000-forint note like the current issue (P200), but with new color scheme and updated security features. This is the first denomination to be revised, but the bank intends to update all denominations by 2018.
