In 2005 the Bulgarian National Bank started a new gold plated .999 silver coin series called Treasures of Bulgaria. The first coin of the series was dedicated to the sensational discovery of a Thracian gold mask in the summer of 2004, when a team of Bulgarian archeologists unearthed a large, intact Thracian mausoleum (Kosmatka Tomb) dating back from the 5th century BC near the central Bulgarian town of Shipka. It was probably one of the richest tombs of a Thracian ruler ever founded in Bulgaria. The series was very well accepted by collectors and is perhaps the most popular of the recent issues by the Bulgarian National Bank.
