South Korean Won

E-mail Print

On June 23, 2009, the Bank of Korea released the 50,000 Won note. On the front a portrait of Shin Saimdang, a prominent 16th-century female artist, calligrapher, and mother of Confucian scholar Yulgok can be seen. Yulgok is also known as Yi I, whom we can find on the 5,000 Won note. This note is the first Korean banknote that features the portrait of a woman. 100,000 won notes were also announced, but their release was later canceled. However, there has been many complaints about how the new 50,000 won note looks very similar to the 5,000 won note. [Wikipedia]South Korean Won intro

North Korean Won Papercraft

E-mail Print

The wŏn became the currency of North Korea on December 6, 1947, replacing the Korean yen that was still in circulation. It was revalued at a rate of one hundred to one in 1959. North Korean wŏn are intended exclusively for North Korean citizens, and the Bank of Trade issued a separate currency (or foreign exchange certificates) for visitors, like many other socialist states. However, North Korea made 2 varieties of foreign exchange certificates, one for visitors from "socialist countries" which were colored red, and the other for visitors from "capitalist countries" which were colored blue/green. In recent times, FECs have been largely depreciated in favor of visitors paying directly with hard currency, especially the euro. [Wikipedia] North Korean Won

Japanese Money - Yen Papercraft

E-mail Print

The 2000 yen note was first issued on July 19, 2000 to commemorate the 26th G8 summit in Okinawa and the millennium year as well. Pictured on the front of the note is Shureimon, a famous gate in Naha, Okinawa near the site of the summit. The other side features a scene from the The Tale of Genji and the author Murasaki Shikibu on the lower right corner. The motif of the scene was taken from the 12th century illuminated handscrolls of the novel kept at the Tokugawa Art Museum in Nagoya. [wikipedia] Japanese Money

Malaysian Ringgit Papercraft

E-mail Print

The word ringgit means "jagged" in Malay and was originally used to refer to the serrated edges of silver Spanish dollars which circulated widely in the area during the 16th and 17th century Portuguese colonial era. The Singapore dollar and the Brunei dollar are also called ringgit in Malay (although currencies such as the U.S. and Australian dollars are dolar), hence its official abbreviation RM for Ringgit Malaysia.
