Korea (South) 100 Hwan 1959
The legendary founding of Korea happened in 2333 BC on Gregorian (Western) calendars. That makes the Korean year 4292 equivalent to 1959 AD, and that is the date of this coin. These were minted only that year and the mintage is not known. Even though they are made of non-precious copper-nickel, collectors are willing to pay a little money to add one of these unique items to their collections.
Coin: 14785 , Genre: The Sinosphere
