10 South Korean won coin (old type bronze)
The Bank of Korea issued South Korean Won coins in 6 different denominations,
including this 10 South Korean won coin (old type bronze). They are part of the South Korean Won coins series. The Bank of Korea started issuing
these 10 South Korean Won coins in 1966. They are currently still in circulation.
This First Series 10 won coin was made from commercial bronze, with a high concentration of copper. Due to the increasing value of copper, subsequent versions of the 10 won coin had decreasing amounts of copper and increased zinc content, making them lighter and more brassy in colour, until the most recent Series IV version which was a lightweight copper-plated aluminium coin. Like all the 10 won coins, it features Dabotap Pagoda in in Gyeongju, believed to date from 751, and designated National Treasure number 20.
