Large type half Won of the Kuang Mu reign. Exceptionally nice because blazing luster appears below the original golden toned surface. Most are found cleaned or worse. This one graded at PCGS as MS64, this exceptional example can be seen at this [ link ]

The Imperial Seal of Korea or Ihwamun was one of the symbols of the Korean Empire and it features a plum flower (Ihwa or Ehwa). It was originally the emblem of the royal family and was subsequently used for the coat of arms of the short-lived Empire, it can still be seen on some buildings. Plum blossoms are associated with the transition of season and they are as the heralds of spring in Korea. [from: "The Meaning Behind Plants On World Coins" by Ema Sikic of Baldwin's in London.
