North Korea ½-CHON (KM189) Mouflon
In 2002, North Korea issued a series 12 coins, eight with animals and four with planes, trains, and ships. There are 100 chon to the won, which makes the denomination of these coins quite small. I doubt these were intended for circulation, but I have included them anyway.
The European Mouflon is thought to be one of two ancestors of all modern sheep, and originated in southwest Asia, although it is doubtful they exist in North Korea except in a zoo.
