AHKcoin 1 1896arpad reverse

A man in armor (Árpád, considered the founder of Hungary) riding a horse, facing from right to left on a three-quarter diagonal. The man has an axe tucked behind his belt buckle and is wearing a winged helmet and a round shield on his thigh. He is standing up on his stirrups and his left hand is pointing down, index finger extended, as though he is giving a command. The horse is being led by a woman in flowing dress on the left, its right leg lifted as though about to take a step. To the right of the horse is a soldier wearing a tunic and holding a sword in his right hand. In his left hand he is grasping the sheath of his sword, which is attached to his belt. The faces of two more soldiers can be seen in the background.
