South Korean won to pounds Sterling

One South Korean won (₩) can theoretically be subdivded into 100 jeon, however due to their low value jeon are no longer in circulation and the smallest unit of physical currency you're likely to come across is the ₩10 coin.

There are four denominations of South Korean won banknotes in frequent circulation: ₩1000, ₩5000, ₩10000 and ₩50000; and four coin denominations: ₩10, ₩50, ₩100 and ₩500.

The current series of South Korean won banknotes, issued by the Bank of Korea, was introduced in 2007 and is commonly known as the 'Korean New Series'. Each banknote features designs that highlight Korea's cultural heritage, intellectual achievements, and artistic legacy. For example, the ₩1000 note depicts Korean philosopher Yi Hwang alongside a traditional Korean decorative painting technique called "dancheong" which is found in temples and palaces across the country. The highest denomination note - ₩50000 - commemorates Shin Saimdang; an accomplished Korean artist, alongside her masterpiece landscape painting "Geumgang jeondo".
