KRW - South Korean Won: South Korean Won is the official currency of South Korea. Prior to 1910, the won was the currency. During the colonial era under the Japanese (1910–45), the won was replaced by the Korean yen which was at par with the Japanese Yen. After World War II ended in 1945, Korea was divided, resulting in two separate currencies, both called won, for the South and the North. After several devaluations, new currencies with the same name have been introduced over time. The Bank of Korea is the only institution in South Korea with the right to print banknotes and mint coins.
