  • This place is an awesome experience. I enjoyed how the staff did speak English and helped us with all our questions. They had an aluminum press there that you can buy a bookmark size aluminum sheet that you can press yourself into a cool looking bookmark with a pressing of the old school Korean coins. The bottom floor is all about coins from long ago to today. They even have coins from all the Olympics and the world cup. The main part I enjoyed was the star wars coins, that was a surprise. Upstairs was all about paper money and national medals they award to outstanding citizens and soldiers of Korea. They also had a section on how they combat counterfeit bills from all over the world. Most of it was money that was produced pre 1910 Japanese invasion, during the Japanese occupation, and after August 15, 1945. It was very informative to see how the Korean won has evolved. In one of the last rooms, you visit they have money from all over the world that's on display. From bills to coins. Was really cool to see vintage American money in there as well. By far the coolest monetary note was the Swiss. Vertical bills... Awesome visit. Entry is free. Self-guided tour. Helpful staff that speaks English. There is a small souvenir store inside near the cafe. It acts as a small 7-11 as well. You can get old commemorative coins and even some bills from North Korea and other countries. They also sold coins from jorea and uncut bills from the mint. They had 10 5 and 1's bills that were uncut.
