Detailed information about Coin: Two Leva 1941 from Bulgaria

Coin: Two Leva 1941
Description

This type was originally struck in copper-nickel in 1925. When a new issue was organized, material shortages forced its issue in iron, along with a one, five and ten leva. This proved unsatisfactory, so the 1943 issue was done in nickel plated steel.
