North Korea ½-CHON (KM188)


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.

There are actually snakes in North Korea, but a Google search on snakes north korea returns mostly results on the current political climate in the country, and its abysmal human rights record. Go figure.
