2010 "125 Years Bulgarian Unification" 925 Silver Coin • Historic Aniversaries
We find the latest coin ‘125 years of Bulgarian unification’ quite original and remarkable. Its design is quite different than the one of most other recent Bulgarian coins. The design is simple, yet quite creative and aestetically pleasing. We congratulate the authors Simeon Krastev and Ivan Cholakov for their originality.
The coin surprised collectors with its gilded element as no gold plating had been announced before the coin issue. The mintage of the coin of 5,000 pieces makes owning this coin a very interesting proposition.
Judging by the history of modern Bulgarian coins, Bulgarian silver coins with mintage of 5,000 or have MOSTLY quickly sold out and are currently harder to find. Since the year 2000 such sold out coins are:
Mintage of 4,000 (All sold out)
- The 2009 "130 Years Bulgarian National Bank", 10 Leva .999 Silver Coin
The obverse of the coin features the logo of the Bulgarian National Bank with its year of establishment 1879 written on the ribbon. Around it is the inscription "Bulgarian National Bank", the year of issue 2010 and the nominal value of the coin - 10 Leva.
The reverse of the coin sports a gold plated reproduction of the seal of the Bulgarian Secret Central Revolutionary Committee, established in Plovdiv in 1885. Around it the inscription "125 years from the Bulgarian Unification" is placed.
