1 Chon (一錢) Coins


The Korean 1 chon (一錢) coins were produced during the period 1905-1910. All the coins were made at the mint in Osaka, Japan (日本大阪造幣局). For the first two years (1905-1906), the coins had a diameter of 28 mm, a thickness of 1.5 mm, and a weight of 7.1 grams. The coins produced during the following years (1907-1910) were smaller with a diameter of 22.5 mm, a thickness of 1 mm, and a weight of 4.1 grams. All the 1 chon coins, however, had the same composition: 98% copper, 1% tin, and 1% zinc. Shown below is a complete set of Korean 1 chon coins.

 

Korean Chon and Won Coins (1902-1910)

During the years 1902-1910, the coins of Korea were denominated in won (圜) and chon (錢). The chon was equal to 1/100th of a won.

The coin denominations consisted of chon (半 錢), 1 chon (一 錢), 5 chon (五 錢), 10 chon (十 錢), 20 chon (二十錢), and half won (半 園).

The half won (半園) coins were only minted during the years 1905-1908.

The half won coins made in 1905 and 1906 are composed of 80% silver and 20% copper. The diameter is 31 mm and the weight is 13.5 grams.

The half won coins struck in 1907 and 1908 are also 80% silver and 20% copper but are slightly smaller with a diameter of 27.5 mm and a weight of 10.0 grams.

The dragon symbol was replaced by the phoenix on the chon, 1 chon and 5 chon coins.

All of the coins from this period were made at the mint in Osaka, Japan (日本大阪造幣局).
