I got this coin the other day along with 12 other Hungarian coins. I like the design.

Yes, a nice piece indeed; I have one of those too. The drawing, however, is not a coin-specific design but the logo of the organization: http://www.gyermekmento.hu (Click on the UK flag icon to get some background info in English.)

No such thing, hehe. Fixed the title, but keep in mind that the word "forint" is derived from the florin/fiorino. ;)

Nice coin! Was it 'designed' by a kid? ;)

Wow, never noticed...I always assumed it was a florin. Learn something every day even if I should have knew it 40 years ago  :-[

Not sure who designed the logo. But it can also be found on a surcharged postage stamp issued in 2011: https://www.posta.hu/static/internet/download/04_Gyerekmentok_EN.pdf (text in English). Might as well have been an adult who wanted to create a simple yet "obvious" design ...
