Kim Jong Un Summit Challenge Coins.

Last week, on 25 April 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in the Russian city of Vladivostok.
Like it was the case for the two previous North Korea / USA summits, a special coin / medal was issued for the attendance of the gala dinner, to commemorate this special occasion.

You will find attached these three coins:

1. The medallion commemorating Putin and Kim's first summit says "welcome" in Russian and Korean.

2. The coin commemorating the 1st meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, in Singapore, was referring to Kim as North Korea’s “Supreme Leader” a title not usually used by the US.

3. The coin commemorating the 2nd meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, in Hanoi, was featuring the flags of the US and North Korea, along with a dove and the slogan “World Peace.”

Some collectors pieces to grab…

Re: Kim Jong Un Summit Challenge Coins.

Thanks.

Really disappointed by the "Russian" design. Made in DPRK ? My thought…

Re: Kim Jong Un Summit Challenge Coins.

Looks like every country now uses the same machine tools and gilding/silvering processes...

Or... made in China?
