FROM THE BANK OF KOREA: The Bank of Korea has decided to issue three new Korean National Parks Commemorative Coins (Deogyusan, Mudeungsan and Hallyeohaesang) on October 4 (Thursday), as part of a commemorative coin series, in an effort to make the beauty of Korea’s natural environment and the future value of ecological preservation more widely known.

OBVERSE: Center, a panoramic depiction of an autumn scene of the Muju Gucheong-dong Valley, with leaves turning from green to full blazing color, the Seolcheon River twisting through the forest and tumbling over the Gucheonpokpo waterfall. At the top running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed 한국의 국립공원 / 덕유산 (Korean National Parks / Deogyusan). At the bottom of the coin running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed 2018/ 한국은행 / 삼만원 (Year of issue / Bank of Korea / 30,000 Won).

REVERSE: Center, is depicted the Kumkang fat minnow (Rhynchocypris kumgangensis) swimming above a rocky stream bed. At 2 o’clock, inset in a circle is depicted the Korean Fir (Abies koreana). These are considered the two flagship species (Flora and Fauna) of Deogyusan National Park. At the top of the rim running in a semicircle is inscribed ‘Korean National Parks / Deogyusan’, at the bottom of the reverse running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed ‘2018 / THE BANK OF KOREA / 30000 WON’ (year of issue / issuing party / denomination).

NOTES: The mintage was cut in half from 20,000 of each coin to 10,000 of each coin. The mintages were again split between single coin offerings and sets, 2,000 of each coin available individually and 8,000 of each coin placed into sets, distributed by KOMSCO.

Deogyusan was designated as a National Park in 1975 and is one of 17 Mountiainous parks in Korea. The Muju Gucheong-dong Valley is the most popular trail in the park, stretching 27km north from the peak of Deogyusan (1,614m).
