    Hungarian lottery tickets: The lottery (or raffle) tickets are papers that participate in draws with a serial number on them on a given date. They had two basic types earlier: the class lottery tickets organized by the state and the one-off lottery tickets not issued by the state. In Hungary, the ‘class/serial’ lottery tickets appeared in 1897, replacing the former state lottery system. They were drawn in defined serials (so-called ’classes/serials’) and dates fixed for one year in advance. Half of the prizes were draws and the whole amount paid for them was spent on the payment of winnings. The lottery ticket business profits came from reducing about 20% from winnings, selling the draws falling on the tickets not sold, and selling not renewed tickets to other persons at full price. In the case of one-off tickets, winnings were usually different amounts of money or draws defined in advance. The value of the winnings drawn was naturally lower than the total value of the lottery tickets issued and the difference remained the profit of the issuer. The lottery ticket issue was allowed by the state for different charity reasons, for example aiding the victims of natural disasters or sponsoring cultural, social investments (school building, etc.). These kinds of lottery tickets were issued in Hungary in the first half of the 19th century for the first time and contributed to the humanitarian or cultural fund raising until the middle of the 20th century.

    A Telefon Hírmondó Rt. részvénye 200 koronáról

    Shares from the Hungarian National Museum. Shares first appeared in the economic life of the modern era of Europe. The ‘company limited by shares’ corporations became popular in the first half of the 19th century. After 1867, thousands of companies limited by shares were formed during the decades of the economic boom within the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. This form of companies remained an important actor of the economic life in the country until the socialization in 1949. The company limited by shares form appeared again in Hungary as of the last years of the socialist regime, in the second half of the 1980s. But at the beginning of the 2000s, the obligation of issuing shares on paper was abolished. The museum’s collection consists of about 2600 shares, of which we publish about 1600 pieces. We introduce the oldest shares of different issues of companies.
