This pendant was hand cut from a genuine 1979, Korean, 100 won coin using strictly non-electric hand tools.

This coin features Lee (or Yi) Soon-Shin, Korean Naval hero of the 16th century. Here is a brief excerpt form wikipedia on the admiral:

Yi Sun-sin (April 28, 1545 – December 16, 1598, also commonly transliterated Yi Soon-shin or Lee Sun-shin, Korean:이순신) was a Korean naval leader noted for his victories against the Japanese navy during the Japanese invasions of Korea (1592-1598) during the Joseon Dynasty. He led the victories as the first commander of the Gyeongsang, Jeolla, and Chungcheong provincial navies. His title of Samdo Sugun Tongjesa (Hangul : 삼도수군통제사, Hanja :三道水軍統制使), literally meaning "Naval Commander of the Three Provinces" was to remain as the title of the commander of the operating arm of the Korean navy until 1896. Yi is also known for his innovative use of the turtle ship (거북선), the world's first armoured warship. He is reputed to be one of the few admirals to have been victorious in every naval battle (at least 23) in which he commanded.[1]

This pendant is about the size of a US quarter and is copper\/nickel in makeup and silver in color.

Thanks for looking and please see my multitude and daily growing list of postings. I have many more coins from Asia, Africa, Eastern and Western Europe, and every other corner of the world and spanning many centuries.
