FROM THE BANK OF KOREA: On November 14, 2019, Bank of Korea issued three new ‘Korean National Parks Commemorative Coins’, in an effort to make the beauty of our natural environment and the future value of ecological preservation more widely known.

OBVERSE: Center Foreground, a panoramic depiction of Namsan Mountain and one of the many small temple sites and Buddhist treasures on it. In the background are the surrounding mountains shrouded in fog turned hues of purple and salmon by the rising sun. Left, a rock-carved Bodhisattva at Sinseonam Hermitage on Namsan Mountain. At the top running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed 한국의 국립공원 / 경주 (Korean National Parks / Gyeongju). At the bottom of the coin running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed 2019/ 한국은행 / 삼만원 (Year of issue / Bank of Korea / 30,000 Won).

REVERSE: Center, is depicted two Mandarin Ducks (Aix galericulata), a male and female floating in a stream. At 11 o’clock, inset in a circle is depicted the Japanese Red Pine (Pinus densiflora). These are considered the two flagship species (Flora and Fauna) of Gyeongju National Park. At the top of the rim running in a semicircle is inscribed ‘Korean National Parks / Gyeongju’, at the bottom of the reverse running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed ‘2019 / THE BANK OF KOREA / 30000 WON’ (year of issue / issuing party / denomination).

NOTES: 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.

Gyeongju was designated as a National Park on December 31, 1968 and is one of 17 Mountainous parks in Korea. Gyeongju is the only National Historic Park in Korea. Namsan Mountain is the most popular site in the Park, it has a variety of Cultural Heritage Sites and is considered an open air museum.
