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, a panoramic depiction of the Park as viewed from a mountain top. In the foreground are Maple leaves and trees in full red autum plumage. Background, a view through the trees looking down on Baegyangsa Temple atop of Baegamasan Mountain. At the top running in a semicircle around the rim is inscribed 한국의 국립공원 / 내장산 (Korean National Parks / Naejangsan). 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 the Buprestid (Chrysochroa fulgidissima), shown at rest and in flight. At 11 o’clock, inset in a circle is depicted the Yellow Surprise Lily (Lycoris chinensis). These are considered the two flagship species (Flora and Fauna) of Naejangsan National Park. At the top of the rim running in a semicircle is inscribed ‘Korean National Parks / Naejangsan’, 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.

Naejangsan was designated as a National Park on November 17, 1968 and is one of 17 Mountainous parks in Korea. The Park contains a total of 919 plant species and 1,880 animal species 12 of which are considered endangered, such as the Small-Eared Cat and Yellow-Necked Marten.
