Released on June 4, 2009, this base metal issue commemorates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Donát Bánki.

Donát Bánki (June 6, 1859–August 1, 1922) was a Hungarian mechanical engineer and co-inventor of the carburetor in 1893. In 1898, Donát Bánki invented the high-compression engine with a dual carburetor, an evaporation method used ever since.

The invention of the carburetor helped the development of automobiles, as previously no method was known to correctly mix the fuel and air for engines.

The obverse features a stylized representation of the Bánki water turbine. The reverse bears a portrait of Donát Bánki and the inscriptions "1859–1922" and "a Bánki-féle vízturbina feltalálója" (inventor of the Bánki water turbine).
