Korea

North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, occupies the northern half of a mountainous peninsula. With the geographic area of approximately 46,540 square miles, the country is bordered by the People's Republic of China and Russia on the north, on the east by the Sea of Japan, on the west by the Yellow Sea, and on the south by South Korea. Hills and mountains cover almost the entire country, with narrow valleys and small plains in between. The major mountain ranges are located in the north-central and northeastern sections of North Korea and along the eastern coast.

As a modern coin issuer, the country is known for its lovely Lunar coins dedicated to the animals of the Chinese Zodiac calendar.
