The Bulgarian National Bank was established on 25 January 1879 and on 4 June 1880 the Second Ordinary National Assembly voted the Coinage of the Principality (Minting Rights) Act, granting the state exclusive rights to circulate coins. The Act also established the lev (plural: levs) as the national currency, dividing it into a hundred stotinkas.
This catalogue lists BNB-minted circulation coins, without specimens, proofs and curios.
