Coin shops in Korea - Hoehyeon Underground Shopping Centre



Not having been to South Korea before, I took the opportunity to visit some of the coin shops in the area we were staying. As it turns out, there was an entire underground shopping area dedicated to coins, banknotes, antiquities, and other collectibles. While Australian coins and banknotes were thin on the ground, there were a few odd items to make it interesting.
