The Bulgarian lev (BGN) is the official currency of Bulgaria. While Bulgaria is an EU member state, it has not adopted the euro as its currency.
Each lev (meaning ‘lion’ in old Bulgarian) can be divided into 100 stotinki. The plural of lev is leva. Leva banknotes come in 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100. There’s also a 1 lev and 2 leva coin.
Stotinki coins come in 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50.
The Bulgarian lev is only used in Bulgaria. Bulgaria has also mooted various dates to join the euro, however this is yet to happen.
