    I don't much about Korean coins. Except I was both in Seoul and may have used a coin like that. Is that just an uncirculated 100 won coin? I have an understanding of US terms and coins. Did the Korean government issue proofs or what back then?

    Looks like this coin is a business strike only. 1.5 million made and it's Cu-Ni. Peace Roy

    Yes, they authorized proofs in the early 1970s, but not this coin. This is indeed just an uncirculated 100-Won coin. I sold one in MS-64 for over $1K a few weeks ago.

    The proofs were a series of gold and silver commemorative coins that South Korea issued under the auspices of Italcambio in the early 1970s.
