North Korea ½-CHON (KM186) Giraffes

In 2002, North Korea issued a series 12 coins, eight with animals and four with planes, trains, and ships. There are 100 chon to the won, which makes the denomination of these coins quite small. I doubt these were intended for circulation, but I have included them anyway.

The last time I checked, there were no herds of wild giraffes running across North Korea.
