The South Korean won is the currency of South Korea. Our records show the South Korean won is the 15th most traded currency with us. The banknotes are printed on paper material. The Bank of Korea (BOK) is responsible for issuing the South Korean banknotes.
Due to the sharp increase in banknote counterfeiting, the Bank of Korea adopted various complex anti-counterfeiting devices. Along with the new security features, the design was modernized with fresh colors and themes including science, art, and philosophy. The overall size of the banknotes was also reduced for increased convenience and to meet advanced country standards.
