The Mint Bureau, which had been striking Korean coins for 20 years, was closed in 1904 due to Japanese pressure. The Osaka Mint then coined the Korean gold coins of 1906, 1908, and 1909, with two three-piece sets known of the 1909 issue, one remains in the Japanese museum, and the other we offer in this sale of the Jacobs Collection.
