Bulgaria 1 Lev and 2 Leva 1925 to 1941

Bulgaria issued these nice-looking coins in 1925 and in 1941. They are made of copper-nickel.

The values of these coins are a little unusual. In circulated condition, current auction results agree with the catalogs, i.e., the values are low. But looking at auction results for top-quality, fully uncirculated specimens, the actual values go through the roof while catalog values remain low.

Here are CoinQuest's best estimates of catalog value:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $500

The marked up-tick in value for uncirculated coins is substantial.

Coin: 19954 , Genre: Orthodox and Slavic
