The name ‘won’ is an amalgamation of the Chinese ‘yuan’ and Japanese ‘yen’, all of these are words which man ‘round’.
As North Korea is a socialist state, a separate currency is issued for visitors. North korea issue foreign exchange certificates for visitors, blue for non- socialist country visitors and the red for visitors from other socialist countries.

Just to say, I have been very pleased with the service offered. Your website was easy to use and gave me all the information i needed, found two foreign exchange companies we liked and let them compete for the business. Ended up using Aston Currency Management where the transaction went smooth and the money was delivered before 1pm on the day specified. Thank you.
