Author Mark Lovmo passed along this information about South Korea's new rocket coins. Thanks. Here's the common reverse.
South Korea has issued new coins to commemorate the successful launch of the country's first domestically built space rocket on June 21, 2022.
2,000 of each coin will be sold as single coins, and 5,000 of each coin will be included in 2-coin sets. The clear-plastic set packaging will resemble the nosecone of a rocket.

Issuance of Successful launch of the Nuri space rocket Commemorative Coins
"North Korea gets all the attention in our media in regard to its rockets, but South Korea has rockets as well. ...and they are likely infinitely more capable than those of the DPRK!"
