BNB To Issue Gold Commemorative Epiphany Coin

March 17, 2017, Friday // 16:23

A gold commemorative coin with a nominal of BGN 100 dedicated to the Epiphany will be issued on Monday.

In accordance with tradition, the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB) issues commemorative coins on Christian themes. This year, the topic selected is the Epiphany.

“Always, on the website of BNB, we hold voting on coin topics and it is exactly this kind of coin that had an 81% approval rate at last year’s vote.”

The face side of the coin depicts the emblem of the Bulgarian National Bank. An iconic depiction of the Virgin Mary and Archangel Gabriel telling her the news about the immaculateconception adorns the other side of the coin.

The coin has been given status of investment gold. It will be sold at BNB cash registers for BGN 920 (VAT excluded). A total of 2,000 coins will be issued.

For the record, in civil-servantspeak, an epiphany is an idea that may solve a problem or at least bring the discussion forward. Like: "I have an epiphany. Let's issue a gold coin and hope bloody foreigners will buy the gold way above face value, so we can actually pay the garbage collectors". "All right, a coin on epiphany. Anybody against?" Since the word "idea" is fraught with danger, therefore frowned upon among said civil servants, an alternative term is needed. ;D

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
