Bulgarian Lev Conversion

Bulgarian Lev, the currency of Bulgaria

The lev (code: BGN) is the currency of Bulgaria. It is divided in 100 stotinki. In archaic Bulgarian the word 'lev' meant 'lion'. Bulgaria seeks to adopt the Euro, the tentative deadline is 2012. During World war II, in 1940, the lev was pegged to the German Reichsmark at a rate of 32.75 leva = 1 Reichsmark. With the Soviet occupation in September 1944, the lev was pegged to the Soviet ruble at 15 leva = 1 ruble. A series of pegs to the U.S. dollar followed: 120 leva = 1 dollar in October 1945, 286.50 leva in December 1945 and 143.25 leva in March 1947. No coins were issued after 1943; only banknotes were issued until the currency reform of 1952.
