Korea (South) 100 Won  1970 to Date
Korea (South) 100 Won 1970 to Date

These are neat coins from South Korea made in copper-nickel. In worn and average circulated condition, they are very common and worth essentially face value (a few cents US). As condition improves and dates get older, they start to pick up a little value.

100 WON 1970 TO 1974
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $35
100 won dated 1973 are very common; divide these values by four

100 WON 1975 TO 1981
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $8

100 WON 1982 TO DATE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: less than $1
fully uncirculated: $2
100 won dated 1985 are more rare and catalog at $10 in well preserved condition
100 won dated 1998 are more rare and catalog at $5 in well preserved condition

As always you must apply the concepts on our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
