Yi Soon Shin Portrait

Who was Yi Sun Sin?

Yi Sun Sin was a Korean naval commander who saved his people from Japanese invasion forces during the Imjin War (1592-1598).
Despite the fact that he had no prior naval training, Admiral Yi was never defeated at sea, and military historians have placed him on par with Admiral Horatio Nelson as one of the greatest naval commanders in history.
Outgunned, outnumbered, but never outwitted, Yi Soon Shin won 23 consecutive victories and drove the invaders out of his country.

The series

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. This series will be composed by a total of 12 issues, commemorating each one of the most important victories in his military career, and each Silver coin will have a limited mintage of only 500 pieces worldwide.
Each coin comes with a traditional book style case, along with a package of the first issue series of Yi Soon Shin comic book hand signed by the producer himself and the artist's art print.
