forint (plural forints)

  1. The basic unit of currency of Hungary; formerly subdivided into 100 fillér.
    • 2014 January 30, Seth Kugel, “Wintertime Bargains in Budapest”, in The New York Times[1]:
      Better yet, there were no cover charges, and we didn’t bother to order drinks in half the spots. So, despite having a Slovak beer and shots of both the traditional Hungarian fruit spirit palinka and the bittersweet digestif Unicum, the entire evening cost 2,000 forints, under $10.
