Bolivia - 2010 new coins

New circulating coins:

"Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia"

The 50 centavos item of the new series is ready. With the legend "Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia" instead of "Republica de Bolivia". In 2010 we'll see the 10 and 20 centavos, plus the 1, 2 and 5 bolivianos.
They have been and will be progressively minted in 2010 by "Casa de Moneda Chile" (Chile Mint).

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.
