The 1986 1 oz South Korean 50,000 Won Proof Gold Olympic Coin is also known as the Turtle Boat Gold Coin. Minted to celebrate the 1988 Seoul Olympics, this 33mm coin contains 1 oz of gold and comes with presentation box and certificate of authenticity. The obverse features the arms of South Korea over chrysanthemums and the date 1986, while the reverse is a front-quarter view of a legendary Turtle Boat, with the logo of the Seoul Olympics and the legend XXIV OLYMPIAD SEOUL 1988 and a denomination of 50000 Won.
The Turtle Ships had a dragon head bow and a curved, fully-covered deck adorned with spikes to repel boarders. Armed with a ram and many cannon, the turtle boats would ram their opponent, then deliver a point-blank broadside. The curved roof deflected cannon and musket fire, and incendiaries rolled off.
