About the Design
25th June 1950 marks the beginning of the Korean War - this coin set has been minted in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of this major conflict. Described at the time as a "police action", the 3-year conflict involved combatants from 16 nations as well as the United Nations supporting South Korea against North Korea and China with Soviet Union air support.
The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sovereign of the Commonwealth and Niue.
The reverse features an engraved image of a Korean War soldier with the background being selectively coloured to symbolise the Korean Flag. Engraved stars and headings complete this exquisitely crafted coin.
No more than 2,000 Korean War silver coins will be issued by New Zealand Mint. A certificate of authenticity comes with each coin.
