I walked into the jewelry shop in Seoul a few months ago and gave them 3oz of gold I came back 4 days later to find this. Best part is I didn't get robbed by the highway jewelry robbers in Aus on the labor cost, worked out just over $100 aus to make.

Yeap, North Korea.
To be honest that's the first time in almost 4 years watching an auction in Japan I've seen the coins of N.Korean Lunar Series for sale ...

As of other North Korean coins I've noticed several colored pandas, as well as very few commemorative coins showing up once in a while
I haven't tracked how often they show up on auction but comparing them to 1983 panda, I'd say that for 5 1983 pandas listed on auction here (yeah, they are not that rare here) there is one North Korean modern silver coin. (at least I've seen that many pandas and that few N.Korean coins)

Now here's gold coin set on auction http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/172679971

Hmm, the North Korean coins were available at the SG Coin fair recently.

It was all the rage cos they pretty much sold their whole lot! Also helped that they had some pretty girls manning the booth. lol

(Rumour has it that even Jim Rogers sent someone down to buy some coins).

here is the rumor

U.S. investor Jim Rogers purchased most of the gold and silver coins offered by North Korea at a coin fair in Singapore this weekend, state-owned Korea Pugang Coins Corp. said.
This year, 20 one-ounce gold coins featuring mostly century-old generals were on offer as well as several hundred silver coins. Mr. Rogers bought 13 gold coins and most of the silver coins. "He wanted to buy more, but we only had 13 [gold coins] left," said a representative of Korea Pugang Coins. The company offered the gold coins for 2,500 Singapore dollars, or $2,015—well above Friday's closing gold price of $1,598.25 an ounce in London.
By invest in, Mr. Rogers means he wants to wager against the long-term prospects for the isolated, economically struggling country. He views his purchase as a bet on the collapse of North Korea.
"At some point down the line, North Korea will cease existing as a country. Then the value of the coins will go up," Mr. Rogers said.

BTW, how much were N.Korean coins worth at SG Coin fair?

Manipulation..... If you want to continually subscribe to this idea then get out of precious metals. Only a fool would play a game that is completely rigged. As you still are in the game, I would say that you are not completely convinced of the manipulation ...

Re: Today I Bought...

Bought this over the weekend at the LCS. I was being told that this is the 1/10 silver, coloured monkey s1. This was used for sample for the big overseas distributor.

For those who attend February Melbourne Meet, you might recall Captain Kookaburra winning the auction of Replica Rooster coin, with all the marking on the coin, and box etc.

Might sell/swap as it is, or might go see a jeweler and make a pendant out of it.
