The official currency of Bulgaria is the lev and each lev can be subdivided into 100 stotinki. The written symbol for the lev is "??". Interestingly, even thought the stotinki is a sub-unit of the lev, the word stotinki itself in archaic Bulgraina actually is translated as "lev", which at the time was defined as "lion".
The BGN was formed in July 1999 when the previous version of the lev, then known as BGL, was re-denominated and devalued 1000:1. Originally pegged to the German Mark it is now pegged at a fixed rate to the euro.
The lev is available in 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 lev banknotes with the 1 lev note no longer being printed as it was replaced by a 1 lev coin. Other minted coins of the BGN are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 stotinki and 1 lev.
