What is the Korean Won Exchange?

The won (KRW) is the currency of South Korea. One singel won is divided into 100 joen (meaning "money"), but the jeon is no longer used in day-to-day transactions and is only used for foreign exchange rates. "Won" is derivitive of the Chinese yan and the Japanese yen.  

 

Understanding South Korean Money

South Korean WonAfter World War II, Korea was divided into two separate states. The won was also divided, however, both the North andn South still called the currency the won. Later, in 1946, the Bank of Joseon introduced 10 and 100 won notes. A couple years later both the 5 and 1000 won notes entered circulation. 


In 1950 the Bank of Korea was established, along with denominations of 5, 10, 100 adn 1000 won--replacing the old notes. Until 1966, the only coins in circulation were the 10 and 50 hwan. New coins, now denominated in won wer introduced in 1,5 and 10 won denominations.
