SOUTH KOREAN CURRENCY MUSEUM ARTICLE

On March 2 The Korea Times published an article about the Currency
Museum in Taejon:

"The new recently introduced 5,000 won banknotes are designed
with advanced technologies to stem forgery as well as show the
unique culture and long history of the nation.

It seems that a currency represents the state of contemporary
technology and culture, and that's what people can learn at
the Currency Museum in Taejon.

Opened in 1988, the Currency Museum houses about 12,000 items
that show the history of the nation's bills and coins in its
four exhibition sections _ the Coins Gallery, Banknote Gallery,
Security Features Experience Room and Special Product section."
