    Hello Coin Talk!
    Hope everyone is doing well! I recently acquired these notes and I have no idea where they are from. Also, if they are worth anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (2 Dollar Bill for scale) Thank you in advance!

    Yup those are North Korean. Pretty cool too. I have ~10 notes from NK but none like yours. I like em. As for value? I dunno.

    FWIW - The top part of first picture says Chosun Central Bank. NK refers to themselves as Chosun.
    On the tops of the bills on the 2nd picture it is the Long-form name for DPRK.

    Those are Nifty! I never see coins or currency from North Korea.

    I have quite a few notes from NK
    These more modern ones are the only 3 scanned at present.

    Thank you to everyone who helped me with this! Sorry it took so long to get back. Yeah, I traded some bullion for it, and also got a bunch of other world currency notes, that I’ll try to post later! I’m more into some world coins, but it doesn’t hurt to have something different! Hope everyone is having a great day! :)
