North Korea to issue a new 5,000 won banknote

© wikipediaIt's not every day news arrives out of North Korea regarding banknotes but today there's a report on the Global Post website that North Korea allegedly has issued a new banknote of 5,000 won. The new note, which is the highest denomination in the country, includes an image of the former leader Kim Jong-Il on the front.

"Old notes carried the image of the North's late founder Kim Il-sung alone but fresh ones will also have a portrait of his son Kim Jong-il, who died in 2011, said the source."

As can be expected from a closed nation like North Korea, no images are available right now.
