Hungary is the country in Europe that uses Forint as it’s currency. It formerly divided into 100 filler, but filler coins are no longer in circulation. The introduction of the forint was in 1946. It was a crucial step in the post WWII stabilization of the Hungarian economy. The currency remained relatively stable until the 1980's.
Conversion to a market economy in the early 1990's adversely affected the value of the forint. Inflation peaked in 1991, and since 2001, inflation is in single digits, and the forint was declared fully convertible. The long-term goal may be to replace the forint with the euro, but that might not happen until the 2020's.
