Established in 1975, Kiskunság National Park is Hungary's second national park, located in the Danube-Tisza Interfluve region. It now comprises nine units covering 50,523 hectares, with the primary goal of preserving the unique landscape, natural values, geological formations, and waters of the region, as well as promoting scientific research and education.

The park includes three landscape protection areas and 18 nature reserves. Approximately 180,000 hectares of Natura 2000 areas overlap with the park and other protected regions, conserving habitats and species of European significance. The "sand ridge" area continues to evolve with wind-blown sand dunes and diverse vegetation. The region features a variety of habitats, including floodplain forests, sandy grasslands, juniper-poplar forests, and saline lakes. Recognized for its natural values, two-thirds of the park became a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1979, and areas such as Upper Kiskunság Lakes and Puszta are protected under the Ramsar Convention for wetlands.

Engraver: Gábor Kereszthury


Depicts a characteristic natural formation of the Kiskunság National Park, a sand ridge grooved by the wind, with a few trees and shrubs in the background. In two horizontal lines above the depiction, the inscription "KISKUNSÁG" and "NATIONAL PARK" is visible. At the bottom edge, on the left side, the inscription "FÜLÖPHÁZI" and "SAND RIDGE" can be read in two horizontal lines, while the right side features the engraver's privy mark.



Depicts a fishing avocet, standing in water and its reflection. Above the depiction, in three horizontal lines, the inscription "HUNGARY" is centered, with the denomination and "FORINT" to the right. Along the bottom edge, integrated into the water depiction, vertically on the left, the inscription "AVOCET," and on the right, in two horizontal lines, the "BP." mint mark and the year of issue "2020" are placed.

The avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta) is a waterbird in the order Charadriiformes, first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1758. It breeds along the coastlines and saline lakes of Eurasia and North Africa, migrating to Africa and southern Asia in winter. Natural habitats include lagoons, muddy coastal bays, and saline lakes. The avocet is 42-45 cm long, with a wingspan of 77-80 cm, and weighs 260-290 grams. It features a long, upwardly curved bill, with a black head and neck, and a white belly and wings.
