Bulgaria issues revised 10-levs banknote

The Bulgarian National Bank has issued a modified banknote of 10-levs on 12 June 2020.  The note is part of the new modified series of banknotes.

Тhe overall design and the main elements of the revised banknote series feature no significant changes as compared with the banknotes already in circulation. The changes are related to the introduction of new security features, and for the 10-levs banknote they are as follows:

  • Additional mark for visually impaired people – two thick and eight thin lines at an angle along the short sides of the banknote.
  • Hologram stripe with optical effects – images of the earth globe, a telescope, and a planet, alternating when the banknote is tilted; a coloured hologram portrait of Dr. Petar Beron; images of a ‘crowned lion rampant’ with a dynamic effect and a 3D image of the number 10.
  • Security thread – built into the paper and partially appearing on the reverse, with a repeating light-coloured text ‘БНБ 10’ (BNB 10) and a diagonal dynamic optical effect, shifting its colour from golden to green. The repeating text ‘БНБ 10’ is visible on the obverse when the banknote is held up to the light.
  • High resolution watermark – seen when the banknote is held up to the light. It represents a high resolution half-tone portrait of Dr. Petar Beron. The image is also visible on the reverse of the banknote.

The previous issued of the 10-levs banknote, issues 1999 and 2008, will remain in circulation along with the new issue dated 2020.
