SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's 2010 Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yuna helped unveil a set of commemorative coins for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games on Thursday.

The coins feature winter sports, such as South Korea's traditional "Gorosoi ski" on a 30,000 won ($27) gold coin, and short track speed skating, ski jumping, and luge on the 20,000 won silver coins.

They will go on sale from Monday.
