Bulgaria 50 and 100 Leva  1934 to 1937
Bulgaria 50 and 100 Leva 1934 to 1937

These coins from Bulgaria contain silver, so they can never be worth less than their silver value, even if worn or damaged. The the silver is low-grade, only 50 percent pure, so there is not a lot of silver in each coin:

50 LEVA: 0.161 troy ounces silver
100 LEVA: 0.322 ounces

The coins are old enough that they are starting to pick up collector value.

First, compute the base value (BV) of your coin by multiplying the silver content by the current price of silver. Say silver is trading at $12 US dollars per troy ounce (look it up on kitco.com). The BV for a 100 leva would be 0.322 x 12 = 3.86. If your coin is in good shape with no spots, stains, cleanings, nicks, gouges, and the like, add collector premium to base value.

50 LEVA
worn: BV
average circulated: BV + $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
well preserved: BV + $12
fully uncirculated: BV + $25

100 LEVA
worn: BV
average circulated: BV + $6 US dollars approximate catalog value
well preserved: BV + $10
fully uncirculated: BV + $20

These values apply to all dates. Use our Important Terminology page to properly interpret catalog values.
