Obverse: Hoeryong Revolutionary Site. This is the birthplace and native homestead of Kim Jong Suk, who was the first wife of Kim Il Sung, the mother of Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un’s grandmother. Kim Jong Suk is referred to as the ‘Mother of Korea’ and is revered as an anti-Japanese hero credited with saving Kim Il Sung’s life. She died in 1949 according to her official biography, and her grave is the centerpiece to the Revolutionary Martyrs Cemetery in Pyongyang, a memorial to the decorated soldiers that fought for the liberation of Korea from Japan.

Reverse: Birch trees on the shore of Lake Samji in Samjiyon. Mt. Paektu can be seen in the backdrop. The Samjiyon and Mt. Paektu region is scattered with revolutionary sites marking Kim Il Sung’s activities. Lake Samji is a battle site and grand monuments have been built here in commemoration, including the second-largest statue of Kim Il Sung in the country. The birch tree pictured still stands and is visitable today, said to be a ‘witness to history’ as it’s documented in photos of Kim Il Sung taken here before and after liberation.
