2ND ISSUE: MAHAYANA – SEOKGURAM GROTTO OF KOREA

Seokguram Grotto (the Temple of the Stone Buddha) is located near the top of Mt. Tohamsan in South Korea. It is home to the Sakyamuni Tathagata Buddha (the Incarnation of Truth). The focus of the 2nd coin in this exquisite collection, the serenity of the Buddha at the cusp of enlightenment is skillfully captured on the obverse.

Seokguram Grotto is celebrated as a harmonious union of Buddhist artistry, geometry, architecture and religion. Including the main Buddha, it houses a total of 39 images of Buddhism.

The Dungkar or the conch is featured on the reverse in vivid colors and fine detailing. It is a powerful yet subtle symbol of the spread of Buddhist teachings and the rousing of disciples from their slumber of ignorance.

BUDDHISM

Buddhism is based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, commonly known as “The Buddha” (the Awakened One). The coin program highlights the spread of the different schools of Buddhism throughout the different regions of the world. In modern times, Buddhism is broadly recognized as comprising of three major branches:

a) Theravada, Teaching of The Elders, remains in Southeast Asia, especially Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Thailand.

b) Mahayana, The Great Vehicle, is widely practised throughout East Asia, especially in China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Bhutan.

c) Vajrayana, The Thunderbolt Vehicle, is more prominent in the Himalayan nations of Tibet and Nepal.

There are eight auspicious symbols in Buddhism which can often be found on Buddhism related paraphernalia. The parasol, golden fish, treasure vase, lotus, conch, endless knot, Dharma wheel and victory flag each represent a unique aspect of Buddhist teachings.

COIN DESIGN

This eight coin program celebrates the different schools of Buddhism with each coin paying homage to a renowned Buddha sculpture or a Buddhist monument found in the featured country. Each coin issue also features one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols.

Its unique and unconventional design showcases the Buddhist monument with its name and country of origin inscribed on the obverse. The reverse is a nod to its country of issue, the Kingdom of Bhutan and highlights one of Eight Auspicious Symbols, replacing the traditional national emblem.

This one-of-a-kind coin collection, rich in the history of Buddhism and cultural symbols is definitely a collector’s item.
