Date of Issue : 15 May 2015

King Heonjong (1827 – 1849), the 24th monarch of the Joseon Dynasty, appreciated and enjoyed collecting seals. He even published a book titled, Bosodanginjon (寶蘇堂印存), to introduce the seals he personally collected as well as seals used for private purposes by previous kings of Joseon. Korea Post introduces four personal seals from King Heonjong’s collection in the first set of the Seals of the Joseon Dynasty Series.
