1991 Korean War Commemorative Coins
The United States Mint issued the 1991 Korean War Memorial Commemorative Silver Dollar for the 38th anniversary. This unusual anniversary date was chosen because North and South Korea were divided at the 38th parallel.
The silver dollars had a maximum authorized mintage of up to 1,000,000 coins across proof and uncirculated options. Sales levels reached 213,049 uncirculated coins and 618,488 proof coins. Surcharges from the sale of the coin went to the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
