Where did you get them?
You can also compare the coin to the specifications on this page: https://en.ucoin.net/coin/korea-5-yang-1892/?tid=87123
It does say the edge was smooth, but perhaps variations existed. If the size and weight are both off, they're probably reproductions. Remember that the pin may add some additional grams.
Another page, from NGC.
Page from Numista France (in French).

Assuming that they're real, the pins on the back probably cut down on their value quite a bit, unfortunately. They're very nice coins in any case. I've seen some sale prices for the coin that vary greatly, some for $1,000 - $3,000, but I wouldn't get too excited because these could be rare varieties. In any case, it might be worth having them authenticated.
I bought these from a local estate. They are not magnetic, not even the pin. They weigh 27.6 grams each.
They are not magnetic. I agree that the pins devalue them.
Thank you for the info. One weighs 27.6 grams. I will have to do more research.
