The Name "forint" occurs from the city of Florence where coined golds were minted since 1252 and were called Fiorino d'Oro. In Hungary florentinus (later forints) at the heart of a gold standard began to use since 1325, some other countries have followed to its example.

Production of coins of 2 and 5 fillers has ceased in 1992, and all other coins in fillers have been withdrawn from circulation in 1999. In 1996 the bimetallic coin of 100 forints replaced the same coin of version 1992 as last has been recognised by too big and ugly has been entered, furthermore it could be accepted easily for a coin of 20 forints.
