Bill calls for Korean commems
Legislation calling for commemorative coins to honor Korean emigration to the United States was introduced Oct. 12 in the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Robert E. Andrews of New Jersey.
Do you know which modern commemoratives have the best potential for profit?
Under its terms, 20,000 $5 gold pieces and 10,000 silver dollars would be struck in 2018.
Surcharges of $35 and $10, respectively, per coin would go to the Council on 100th Year Korean Immigration Commemorative Coin Act.
If all of the coins sold, $800,000 in surcharges would be raised.
The legislation notes that the first group of Koreans arrived in the United States in 1903. There are no co-sponsors of the legislation.
