This set includes the five coins used in general circulation in North Korea until the early 21st century. All five coins are aluminum and have the national arms on the obverse.   The 1, 5 and 10 Chon dated 1959 were the first coins issued by North Korea.  The denomination is on the reverse. The 1978 50 Chon features an equestrian statue leaping over the sun.  The 1987 1 Won depicts the National Palace.   Because it is a closed society, North Korean coins are difficult to obtain.

South Korea issued just two coins in 1961, the 10 and 50 Hwan.  Both cons are dated Year 4294 in the Korean era.  The calendar dates from the legendary founding of Korea in 2333BC.  The 19.1mm bronze 10 Hwan features the Rose of Sharon, also known as the Rose Mallow (Hibiscus syriacus).  It is the national flower of Korea.  The 22.9mm 50 Hwan depicts a Turtle Boat.  The metal-clad Turtle Boats date from the late 16th Century, when they were used to repel Japanese invasions of Korea.  The ships were fearsome naval weapons; with multiple cannons and the ability emit toxic smoke or flames from a dragon’s head mounted on the bow.   The denomination and date are on the reverse of both coins.    In 1962 the Hwan was replaced with the Won and the coins were withdrawn from circulation.
