Korea Banknote - 1983 to 2002 Series

This series of Korean banknote consists of three denominations i.e. 1000 Won, 5000 Won and 10000 Won as its previous series. However, the Bank of Korea has made these notes smaller and counterfeiting proof by adding more security features onto the notes.

This series of Korea notes was first issued in 1983 with the release of 1000 and 5000 Won on 11 June 1983. It was then followed by the introduction of 10000 Won on 8 October 1983. Throughout the years, these notes were improved and reissued with adding new security elements.

The second revision of 5000 Won has been reissued on 12 June 2002. In addition, the 10000 Won has gone through two revisions which the second and third revision were released on 20 January 1994 and 19 June 2000 respectively. The intention of the above revisions is to enhance the banknote security against counterfeiting.
