What year do you think this was minted?  1907?

Thank you!!  This has been really helpful to my understanding of what it is.  All these years, I thought it had something to do with the Korean War!

Oh, I do think it would have value to a collector.  The bronze and silver medals are scare, but they do show up from time to time in auction houses.  For those who can't wait and want to buy it immediately, there is likely one for sale right now on a website for an unreasonable price.  But at a realistic price I believe it would be almost irresistible to a collector of Imperial Korean medals.  However, it would take further research to find out what that price would be.

Oh. My. God!

That is the holy grail of Korean medal collecting! You are the luckiest collector on the site for 2018! I would cheerfully trade twelve EK1s for that!

The value of this medal has skyrocketed since “ Mr Sunshine” aired on KBS/ KBT. 

Also, one of Asias’ biggest films of last year was about this couples’ daughter- “The Last Princess! “

The last one I saw at auction in the USA went for $2000 and was resold in Seol six weeks later to the Blue House collection for $5000. 

This is one of the very few independent Korean Empire ( Joeson) medals actually awarded! Estimates are about 1000 were given out- mostly bronze. After the Japanese military intelligence coup d’tat was completed this medal was banned. 

It is VERY desirable in Korea now!

I am sorry to find that this medal that I have collected for two months has been sold, because I recently liked the breast star, I feel very charming.

It turns out that you also like to watch "Mr. Sunshine". This is a good TV series, but his ending makes me feel sad.

Hello Gentlemen, 

I do not know from where you get this value figures for Korea Crown Prince Wedding Medal, but the silver version of this medals pop's up in auction house in the UK, maybe one every 2 years, with a range price about 400 to 600 GBP incl buyer premium.

Of course the bronze version is much much rarer.

Regards.

This medal is collecting dust on  my shelf.  Should I keep this medal as a souvenir of my father's time in Korea or try to sell it?  Anyone have any offers out there?

Regards,

Lou

I like it very much, but I do n’t have enough money to buy it. . Good luck, if you plan to sell, the price I gave is about $ 800, or auction

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
