2017 Cook Islands Yi Soon Shin Silver Coin 10 $ 2 oz
All that stood against an invading army of samurai was one man
who could not be defeated in battle.
YI SOON SHIN is a lavish 12-issue limited comic book series
based on the true story of Admiral Yi Soon Shin, a Korean
naval commander who saved his people from Japanese
invasion forces during the Imjin War (1592-1598).
Outgunned, outnumbered, but never outwitted, Yi Soon
Shin won 23 consecutive victories and drove the invaders
out of his country. Each issue of the comic focuses on an important
battle that helped change the course of the war and
define Yi’s legacy. An international sales sensation, the hit
YI SOON SHIN series has achieved major milestones at
comic book conventions around the world and is the first
series in history to complete the 1500 Comic Book Battle –
not once, but twice! – at New York Comic-Con and sell out
at over 60 conventions worldwide.

176-page graphic novel, featuring a foreword by
comics legend Stan Lee, and a never before seen
