  • Description:

    Due to the Soviet Union’s fateful decision to boycott the United Nations for not recognizing the People’s Republic of China as the China sitting on the UN Security Council, the United Nations was able to form the United Nations Command and send forces to Korea in order to repel what it recognized as North Korean aggression. Although the United States made up of 90% of the United Nations fighting force, 20 other countries contributed to the United Nations forces fighting in Korea. After the initial two months conflict, South Korea was nearly defeated, the UN launched an amphibious invasion at Incheon and forced the Northern forces to retreat north to the Yalu River, the border between Korea and the People’s Republic of China. Chinese forces soon entered the fight and the final two years of the war became attritious until the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed in 1953. Although this was not a formal peace treaty, it has ended formal fighting on the peninsula since.

    The obverse of the 1991 Uncirculated Korean War Memorial Commemorative dollar shows an infantryman climbing up a hill in full gear with his rifle. The bottom of the coin has war ships that were instrumental in the invasion of Incheon and in the skies, jet fighters that saw the world’s first air to air combat of jet fighters. The obverse was designed by John Mercanti. The reverse has a map of Korea, with North Korea shaded in and South Korea with the emblem of its flag. It also has a United States military insignia in the right field of the reverse. The reverse was designed by James Ferrell. The coin itself has been criticized for being cluttered and just as a tool for fundraising for the worthy cause of the Korean War memorial in Washington DC.

    The 1991 Uncirculated Korean War Memorial Commemorative dollar has a mintage of 213,049 dollars. If you have any questions regarding this or any commemorative coin, please call our knowledgeable staff at (800) 735-1311.
