This is the coin found in the original green cloth box, see the other photo here in the Moneta Museum.
1000 Years of Hungary depicting Arpad and his famous queen. Arpad (845 - 907 AD) was the head of the confederation of the Hungarian tribes at the turn of the 9th and 10th centuries. In a history involving the Byzantines and Bulgarians, the Hungarians were forced to leave for a new homeland across the Carpathian Mountains towards the Pannonian Plain. Arpad, a descendant of Attila, led his people to this new homeland in 895 - 896 AD, and thus began a millennium of people known as Hungarians as of 1896.
This is an original strike and a one year type. This type has been re-struck several times in proof silver, with and w/o edge inscription. I've seen one of the original of these offered in a red fiber circular box with the inscription 'Milleniumi Koronaerum 1896' embossed on the lid. Another is this version with a different commemorative special issue round box in green cloth, with gold lettering. The box lid states "Milleniumi Koronaerem 1896." See my 'borrowed' photo of the red fiber box to see the bottom inscription. That photo and example is not from the Moneta Museum.
The King depicted is Franz Joseph I wearing his famous crown.
The coins' obverse inscription: ·AZ EZERÉVES MAGYARORSZÁG EMLÉKÉRE 1896·1 KORONA (To the memory of the millennium of Hungary 1896 1 crown) with K·B· under the King's shoulder. The edge lettering: ~*~ BIZALMAM AZ ŐSI ERÉNYBEN (Translation: MY FAITH LIES IN ANCIENT VIRTUES) Engraver: Filip Edmund Beck. 'K.B.' is the mintmark for the Kremnitz mint, alignment is medal, 1 million were struck. These commemorative 1 year types are usually found circulated.
