Интересную статью нашел.Про Роджерса и раньше читал бред,что он на старости лет решил скупать массово монеты СК и потом круто подняться ,когда режим КНДР рухнет,но тут более подробно о монетах пишут,которые были представлены однажды на Сингапурском коинс шоу,что подтверждает тот факт,что всё-же СК причастна к выпускам памятных монет,хотя чеканят может и не у себя,но всё под чутким контролем солнца нации вечного президента КНДР товарища Ким Ир Сена и маршала товарища Ким Чен Ына
SINGAPORE--Amid heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula, investor Jim Rogers is choosing sides--financially, anyway: He is going long on rare North Korean coins.
But his reasons aren't likely to please Kim Jong Eun.
North Korea gave collectors an unusual opportunity to buy the country's gold or silver minted coins at a three-day coin fair in Singapore this weekend.
By Sunday, Pyongyang-based Korea Pugang Coins Corp. had sold its entire stock of coins, which included 20 one-ounce gold coins featuring mostly century-old generals as well as several hundred silver coins featuring North Korean sports achievements, cultural landmarks and national animals.
Most of the coins were purchased by Mr. Rogers, an American commodities investor now based in Singapore, said a Korea Pugang Coins representative, who didn't give her name. The company knows Mr. Rogers from last year's fair, when he bought the entire lot of North Korean coins offered.
Mr. Rogers, who started the Quantum Fund with George Soros in the 1970s, couldn't be reached for comment, but had said in a previous interview: "Coins and stamps are the only way I can invest in North Korea."
By invest in, Mr. Rogers means he wants to wager against the long-term prospects for the isolated, economically struggling country. He views his purchase as a bet on the collapse of North Korea.
"At some point down the line, North Korea will cease existing as a country. Then the value of the coins will go up," Mr. Rogers said.
According to North Korea's state-controlled news agency, a special series of gold coins were minted last year to commemorate Kim Jong Il, the country's leader who died in late-2011. The inscription: "The Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il Will Always Be Alive." However, none of those coins were put up for sale at the Singapore fair.
