Korea Banknote - 1973 to 1979 Series

This series of banknote issued from 1973 to 1979 was printed by the Bank of Korea with the intention to standardize the portrait appear on Korean currency after the introduction of higher denominations such as 5000 and 10000 Won in 1973.

The portraits on the notes that we see on this issuance have inherited to the current series of Korean banknote (2006 to 2009 series). In other words, the portrait of Yi Huang, Yi I and King of Sejong on banknote 1000, 5000 and 10000 Won adopted in this series of note are the same as circulating notes.

Another interest fact is that these notes were printed with the paper made in Korea. It showed that the Korean-made paper was at a quality par with any other notes in the world.
