Coins of Alexander of Battenberg

Alexander of Battenberg served as the ruler of Bulgaria from 1879 to 1886. During his brief reign, several coins were minted in Bulgaria bearing his likeness and reflecting the country's currency system at the time. Here are the main types of coins issued during Alexander of Battenberg's reign:

Silver Lev Coins: The lev was the official currency of Bulgaria during this period, and silver lev coins were minted in various denominations. These coins typically featured Alexander of Battenberg's portrait on the obverse and various symbols representing Bulgaria on the reverse. Denominations included 1 lev, 2 leva, and 5 leva.

Gold Lev Coins: Gold lev coins were also minted, though in smaller quantities compared to silver coins. These coins were typically of higher denominations and were used for larger transactions. They also featured Alexander of Battenberg's portrait and national symbols on the obverse and reverse, respectively.

Copper Coins: Copper coins of lower denominations were minted for everyday transactions. These coins usually featured simpler designs and were of lower value compared to silver and gold coins. Denominations included 5, 10, and 20 stotinki.

Commemorative Coins: Bulgaria also issued various commemorative coins during Alexander of Battenberg's reign to mark significant events or historical milestones. These coins often featured special designs and were minted in limited quantities.

The designs of these coins reflected Bulgaria's emerging national identity and its aspirations for independence and sovereignty during this period. Today, coins from Alexander of Battenberg's reign are sought after by collectors of Bulgarian numismatics and serve as important historical artifacts from the late 19th century.
