SCARCE NORTH KOREAN COIN SET  

North Korea 5 coin set 1 Chon - 1 Won 1959 - 1987
North Korea rarely issues coins for general circulation and coins are struck for many years with only a single date.  This five coin set includes the first coins that North Korea issued for circulation.  They were used until 2009 when the country did a sudden forced currency revaluation which wiped out the savings of most of its citizens.  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 the Chollima statue which depicts a worker and a peasant woman on horseback. The monument is 151 feet (46 meters) high. It was unveiled in 1961 to celebrate  leader Kim Il-sung's 49th birthday.  The 1987 1 Won depicts the "Grand People's Study House in  Pyongyang. It was constructed in 1982 to celebrate leader Kim Il-sung's 70th birthday.  Because it is a closed society, North Korean coins are difficult to obtain.
