Why purchase this 2017 Silver Proof Set from the South Korea National Parks series?

2017 marks the inaugural year of a gorgeous series issued by the Bank of Korea honoring the country's national parks. The series is expected to include twenty-two designs, released over a period of seven years. This first year of release 2-coin set commemorates Jirisan, Korea's largest (182 square miles) and first designated national park (1967), and Bukhansan National Park, which features the largest area of granite in East Asia. Each proof in the set is struck from 0.4501 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver measuring 32 mm in diameter with stunning selective colorization. Only 500 sets were produced by the Mint of Korea (KOMSCO).

Stunning Detailed Images

Obverse of the coins feature a colorized view of the park, with reverses depicting a plant and animal species common to the region. The Jirisan coin illustrates an Asiatic black bear beside a branch of Korean winter hazel; a great spotted woodpecker and rocky forsythia are depicted on the coin of Bukhansan. Inscribed "KOREAN NATIONAL PARKS," "2017," "THE BANK OF KOREA," "30000 WON" and the park name. The obverse carries the same inscription in Korean characters.
