PRESS RELEASE

16 December 2011

The BNB issues a gold
commemorative coin ‘The Virgin Mary Wayshower’

On 19 December 2011 the Bulgarian National Bank will introduce into circulation a gold commemorative coin ‘The Virgin Mary Wayshower’ from the ‘Bulgarian Iconography’ series. It will be offered for sale at the BNB cash desks for BGN 180, VAT excluded (the coin is investment gold). This is yet another coin from the series, which features an author’s replica of the double-sided icon ‘The Virgin Hodegetria’ (‘She who shows the Way)’, which since 1939 has been preserved at the National Church Museum in Sofia.

The coin is intended to stir collectors’ interest and make an appropriate present for the forthcoming Christmas and New Year’s holidays, which are associated with a new beginning and a hope for a good future.
