RELATED COIN DETAILS
This is the first time ever when the Bulgarian National Bank issues a silver coin with silicate enamel coating. This fact together with the extremely limited mintage of the coin made it an instant hit with collectors and the coin quickly sold out.
The obverse of the coin depicts the logo of the Bulgarian National Bank, with the years ‘1879’ and ‘2009’ inscribed on the ribbon. In circumference there go 'ÁÚËÃÀÐÑÊÀ ÍÀÐÎÄÍÀ ÁÀÍÊÀ’ (BULGARIAN NATIONAL BANK), the face value ‘10 ËÅÂÀ’ (10 BGN), and the year of issue ‘2009’.
The reverse of the coin features a fragment of stained glass in the BNB building, silicate enamel-coated, and the circumferential inscription ‘ÁÚËÃÀÐÑÊÀ ÍÀÐÎÄÍÀ ÁÀÍÊÀ·130 ÃÎÄÈÍÈ’ (BULGARIAN NATIONAL BANK-130 YEARS). On both sides of the fragment there are two stylised leaf oak twigs.
