This 500 Won coin of South Korea was the last of the large sized 500 Won coins to be issued. It is also a commemorative for the 1978 World Shooting Championship. You have a man standing with his rifle and scope and the legend in Korean.
These coins are now nearly 40 years old but still in Uncirculated condition. They are a one year type as well as the last of the large sized 500 Won coins. A most interesting coin and reasonably priced.

Nagorno-Karabakh, Set of 7 Coins. Uncirculated.

Nagorno-Karabakh Set of 7 Coins. Uncirculated. Nagorno-Karabakh can certainly be considered a most unusual country. Although it declared its independence in 1991, the United Nations still considers it part of Azerbaijan. The majority of the residents are of Armenian descent. The country borders Armenia, Iran and Azerbaijan but considers itself an independent nation. This set of 7 coins was issued in 2004 and as far as I know it is the only set of coins from this country. There are 3 aluminium 1 Drams, a Saint, 2 cats and a bird with a very long tail. There are also 2 of the 50 Luma, one with a prancing horse and one with a gazelle. There are 2 of the 5 Drams one with an ancient monument and the other with an ornate church. All the coins are Brilliant Uncirculated condition and I don’t know anywhere else that has this set for sale at this time.
