László Lajtha on a coin
The Hungarian composer László Lajtha (1892-1963) will be honored by the Hungarian National Bank. A coin worth 2000 Forint will bear his name and portrait. The reason for the coin is, that it is now 125 years ago that Lajtha was born. The reverse of the coin depicts Hungarian folk musicians and dancers. Folk music and dance was the main research area of László Lajtha.
