Tavex has a rare opportunity to offer two different 1 oz North Korean silver coins. Kaesong Koryo Insam coin bears the colourful image of ginseng plant with the root and berries, and Lyrurus Tetrix silver coin has a wonderful black grouse on the reverse. The latter is a part of Birds of Korea coin series. The obverses of both coins portray the coat of arms of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Modern proof coins are minted in the Central Bank of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the "Fu Qiang" National Mint. These coins present an exceptional chance to take a peek at this closed country's engraving art. 

These exclusive silver coins have the face value of 10 won and are crafted in 99.9% pure silver, both coins weight 1 ounce (31.10347 grams) unlike other North Korean gold and silver coins. Reportedly the mintage of North Korean coins is very limited. Consequently, any collector who is keen on adding some extremely rare coins to his collection should seriously consider buying these beautiful North Korean silver coins. All the coins are bought from Europe and are from the period before economic and commercial sanctions on North Korea were imposed.

Kaesong Koryo Insam

Insam (ginseng) was used from old times in Korea. Wild insam cultivated in Koryo dynasty was called insam, distinctive from sansam (wild insam). It was cultivated in several areas but the soil, water and weather conditions of Kaesong were most favourable, thus it had biggest and most efficacious insam. Located in the middle of Korea, Kaesong was the capital of Koryo, first unified state of Korea in the midde ages, existed for about 500 years. Now it sits on the Military Demarcation Line, implying tragic division of the nation. Kaesong Koryo Insam has been wide known. It does wonders for exciting the central nervous system, energy and fatigue. It functions anti-radioactivity and anti-cancer, so its medical sphere has been wider than before. Scientific studies have proven that Kaesong Ginseng contains large amounts of healthy ginsenosides.

Lyrurus Tetrix

The black grouse (also known as 'blackgame') is a member of the grouse family Tetraonidae. Roughly the size of a domestic hen, the male, or 'blackcock', has black plumage with a bluish sheen. He has white wing-bars, which are only visible in flight, white under-tail coverts, and a distinctive lyre-shaped tail. The female has grey-brown plumage, (providing excellent camouflage when nesting on the ground) with pale wing bars, and her tail has a slight notch at the end. Both sexes have a red patch called a 'wattle' above each eye. Among its calls are a rapid cackling and a harsh hissing sound. The black grouse is found throughout northern Eurasia, the most southerly populations are found in Kyrgyzstan and North Korea.
