THE GOLD AND SILVER COINS OF THE PRINCIPALITY OF BULGARIA AND THE THIRD BULGARIAN KINGDOM (EXPOSITION)

01.04.2016

THE GOLD AND SILVER COINS OF THE PRINCIPALITY OF BULGARIA AND THE THIRD BULGARIAN KINGDOM (EXPOSITION)
The museum exhibition represents the largest to date collection of silver and gold coins minted and circulated during the time of the Principality of Bulgaria and the Third Bulgarian Kingdom. The collection has been compiled during a period of many years from many different countries – from Australia to Canada, from England
to India, from Russia to Japan.Due to different circumstances – profiteering, trading, wars and others, for many years a significant portion of Bulgarian silver and gold coins from that period have been sold as a commodity,
melted or destroyed. Тhe re-establishment and rebuilding of the newly-liberate Bulgarian state in the period after the Ottoman domination ended in 1878, is one of the most romantic and most patriotic periods in the whole history of Bulgaria. The newlyestablished monetary unit - the Bulgarian lev - together with the national flag,
the coat of arms and the national anthem are symbols of Bulgarian sovereignty and identity. Thanks to the tremendous efforts and investment by Foundation “Turnоvo”, the general public is given the rare opportunity to view this unique exposition of gold and silver coins.
