1999 South Korea 100 Won

Do you have a Korean coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Where were we in the vault? Oh yes K countries. Although it is known as South Korea it is listed in most coin books as Korea-South. I guess they are assuming a reunification will happen one day making it just Korea.

It is not that odd to find some type of Korean coin in your change around these parts. There is a large Korean community not to mention the tourism between Korea and New York is strong. The first time I found one was in the early 1980s. It was years before I knew it was Korean mostly because I was young and finding information about a foreign language was difficult.

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 100 Won / Korea-South
Year: 1999
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.10 in Fine

Do you have a coin from Korea and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you

You cannot exchange coins that are this low value.

It is about $0.10, try eBay to sell.

About $0.10, eBay is fine but it is a common coin.
Banks probably would not take it.
