On July 3, Jo Yong Man, the head of the Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation (KOMSCO) spoke about the plans in an interview.
KOMSCO is responsible for creating commemorative coins or medals whenever there is an important and memorable event in Korea, and Jo Yong Man was asked about plans for future coins and medals.
He revealed, “We are currently pursuing the production of commemorative medals of BTS. We are in the stage of communicating with their agency. As they are idol stars who have seen great success on a global scale, we really hope to create commemorative medals for them, regardless of prospective sales. We believe this will also be a great honor for the BTS members as well.”
