North Korea - Redenomination

New circulating coins:

1 New Won = 100 Old Won

1 jeon and 5 jeon coins were minted in 2008 and bear the issuing year, whereas the 1 won coin and 50 and 10 jeon coins bear year 2002.
Therefore, there is a high possibility that they were printed in 2002 when the July 1st Economic Management Reform Measures were adopted.
