Detailed information about Coin: Fifty Stotinki 1916 from Bulgaria

Coin: Fifty Stotinki 1916
Description

The 1916 issue of Bulgarian coins was never released into circulation. It was all supposed to have been remelted; however, an unknown (but very small) number of coins have made it into the market.

According to the Bulgarian National Bank, there are two varieties: with small and with large dots around the rim; around 350 surviving examples are thought to exist in total.

Collectors should beware of forgeries.
