Calculated on a gold background:

1 Gulden (Forint) = 0,765 gr Gold (in 18th century)
1 gr Gold = 57,7878 USD (this morning exchange rate)
1 Gulden = about 44 USD
1280 Gulden = about 56,5 thousand USD

Subject: [banat] next question

Hope my questions aren’t too much. I do my best to look online and do research but often can’t find answers so thats why I ask here.

Family from Germany to Hungary in 1820 says in records that he had 1280 gulden on him. Any idea if this was Austrian or hungarian currency and how much this might be in today’s dollars so I can know if this a very large amount.

Thanks for any help.
