Gangnam Style discounts on North and South Korea chapters of The Banknote Book
In honor of the worldwide pop-culture success of Psy's Gangnam Style song and video (see above), I'm offering a special deal on the North Korea and South Korea chapters of The Banknote Book. Normally US$9.99 each, now if you buy either one of these chapters, the other one is included as a free bonus.
In addition, these two chapters have been combined into a print-on-demand catalog available at a special price exclusively through Lulu.com.
This 41-page catalog covers every note (149 types and varieties, including 31 notes unlisted in the SCWPM) issued by the Red Army Headquarters in 1945, the Central Bank of North Korea in 1947, the Trade Bank of DPRK in 1988, and the Central Bank of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea from 1959 to present day, as well as every note (159 types and varieties, including 62 notes unlisted in the SCWPM) issued by the Bank of Chosen from 1945 to 1950, and the Bank of Korea from 1949 to present day. This catalog does not contain coverage of the notes of unified Korea.
Each chapter of The Banknote Book includes detailed descriptions and background information, full-color images, and accurate valuations. The Banknote Book also features:
- Sharp color images of note’s front and back without overlap
- Face value or date of demonetization if no longer legal tender
- Specific identification of all vignette elements
- Security features described in full
- Printer imprint reproduced exactly as on note

Subscribe to The Banknote Book
If you collect the entire world or a large number of countries, buying a $99 annual subscription is the best deal because it's less expensive than buying chapters individually, and it entitles you to every chapter currently available as well as everything published—or revised (click here to see the Change Log)—during the next 12 months.
