Forint, or HUF (Hungarian forint) is the official currency of Hungary.
Between 1857 and 1892, the forint was the name used in Hungarian for the currency of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, known in German as the Gulden or Florin.
De naam forint is afgeleid van de plaatsnaam Florence: de naam van de munt is daarmee dezelfde als die van de vroegere florijn in Nederland.

Losses for Hungary's forint may be contained as the central bank decided today to raise its main interest rate, already the highest in the European Union, by half a percentage point.
Gyurcsany, who has resisted calls to resign, is seeking to cut the deficit from the equivalent of 10.1 percent of gross domestic product this year to 3.2 percent in 2009 as part of preparations for eventual adoption of the euro.
