The Governing Council of the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB Governing Council) has approved the design of a circulation coin of BGN 2, issue 2015. The two sides of the coin feature the theme and the image of Paisius of Hilendar taken from the circulating BGN 2 banknotes, issues 1999 and 2005. The same approach has been used to the design of the BGN 1 coin, issue 2002, re-depicting the theme and the image of St. Ivan Rilski from the BGN 1 banknote, issue 1999.

The BGN 2 banknotes, issues 1999 and 2005, will continue to be legal tender, even after the new BGN 2 coin has entered circulation in 2015.
