Iranian Coins Not Allowed On Ebay

Easy to get around the ban. Just list the coins as coming from "Persia."

Notice how many North Korean coins and notes you see on eBay. Lots of them. How? The sellers just list them as "Korea" or "Korean."

Hey gxseries!

Yes, an ORIGINAL 10-Hwan bag of coins (which originated from the US Philadelphia Mint) would be an unbelievable coup, in a few ways.

First, they are essentially non-existent, from what I can tell.

Second, the only image of these original "mint bags" (from a foreign mint) that I have found is from this video:
VZQobNk4MT8


You can see images of people picking up some of these first 10-Hwan coin bags shipped to Korea (I'm guessing that's what's going on in the above government PSA).

Here are some zoomed images:




The text on the bags looks rather generic compared to the later Korean Mint's coin bags starting from the 1960s to the early 2000s. After the early 2000s, the Korean mint began distributing its coins in coin rolls that were placed in boxes.

I looked carefully at these bags, and it seems that the text on these Philadelphia Mint Bags reads:

10,000
10 HWAN
KOREA

4292

Here are what 1960s bags of coins from the Korean Mint look like:

This page shows the highest price for a South Korean coin-related item: 38 million won ($35,000 USD) for a Korean Mint bag of 1966 One-Won coins. The bag was opened, as you can see. It sold in 2018 from the Seoul retailer, Mirinemall.

I cannot really upload a decent photo due to the image size restrictions here at CC. I uploaded an image at Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/Cof3wb6PrY7/

The pages might look puffy because each page consists of two of these Dansco pages adhered together to accommodate the thickness of the Airtite capsules.

I used Dennison Easy-peel clear address labels that I ran off of my computer's printer using "copperplate" font (which closely resembles the Dansco original print). You have to cut the labels down to size. It's not the best result, but it beats spending stupid amounts of money to have a lithographic company do it; and THEY might not even do it for you anyway since you aren't submitting a huge order.

I made these S. Korean albums out of Dansco's blank products. My albums are sort of unique in that they were assembled purposely to accommodate Airtite-brand coin capsules.

Anybody else do this with different countries?

The Korean Mint will continue to produce commems no matter what, I think. They have a Boy Scout Jamboree coin ready for release early next year, and they haven't said anything about shutting down production completely. They don't make much money from their commems, however. Most of the Korean Mint (KOMSCO) revenues from coining sales now come from their new precious medals programs (Chiwoo Cheonang, Korean Tiger, etc), which have shown to be hugely popular outside of Korea.

South Korea 50 Won 1972 Price ?

It could very well sell for a little more than $45. The grade is about MS-62/3. It is only when this coin is in 64, or really 65 that you see MUCH higher valuations in the $200+ range.
This coin is addressed in the new standard work on the subject, "South Korean Coins in the Era of Development."

South Korea 1 Won 1966

Perhaps MS-61/2 with NGC. Price would be below $100 USD.

I can't actually tell what grade this coin is, even with these nice photos.

I address all South Korean coins in my new book on the subject. The entire history and data behind these One-Won coins is covered in the book.
There is a somewhat common clashed dies error with the 1966 One-Won, btw. So when you find 1966 One-Won coins, check the obverse (flower side) and look closely for a clash impression.

Nice coin! Thanks for highlighting South Korean coins!

Craig is a pretty decent retailer. He seems to stand by his product, and it's good to know you'll get new T-size pages.
Also good to know he's continuing to improve the product.

As someone once told me, shipping FROM pretty much any other country in the world TO the USA is cheaper than the other way around, due to international postal agreements.

I always wondered why it was such a bargain shipping things to the States from Korea, but was almost prohibitive the other way...
