    Yes, it is a South Korean 100 Won coin, as shown here

    Edited to add -

    The picture is of Admiral Yi Sun-shin (이순신)

    As mentioned it's a 100 won coin from S Korea. The front with Adm Lee says Bek Won. Is the image correct here or is it reversed? If that is the coin it's backwards and might be worth something to the right collector. The back says Hanguk Enheng, Korea Bank (Bank of Korea.)

    It's pretty, though. You could drill a tiny hole into it and turn it into a charm for a bracelet or necklace
