1962 Bulgaria 5 Stotinki {1-year issue} 1S

1st Coat of Arms

front: Coat of arms of the People's Republic of Bulgaria (1948–1967) with a ribbon bearing the inscription "9 IX 1944"

Consists of a golden lion rampant. 681 is the foundation date of the first Bulgarian empire, 1944 is the foundation date of the People's Republic of Bulgaria.

Following 1944, new times began for the Bulgarian heraldry. In the communist era, the traditional type of coat of arms was replaced by an emblem which preserved the golden lion rampant placed over a non-historically-justifiable oval azure field, but encircled by the ears of wheat, folded by banners, a gear-wheel, a five-pointed red star and some other elements. This composition was derived principally from the pattern of the emblem of the Soviet Union.
