The numerals on some coins are outlined, but the outlines on this Maltese 50 cents are carefully filled in with horizontal lines. Such elaborately designed numerals are less common these days, I find, but I always enjoy looking at them.
The coins of the Irish Free State use Gaelic descriptions for their denominations, and they are presented in an unusual font.
Isn't the unusual font just "Irish Gaelic"?
The Hungarians do some rather weird things with their numerals. Surely they will never be allowed to join the euro.
As for the former, that style looks interesting on the three lower pieces you show us. On the 10 forint piece (see below) it looks a little strange.
And as for that eurobsession of yours ... neither Euroland nor Hungary cares.
