I am looking for information regarding the currency
system used in early Choson (up to and including the
Imjin War's aftermath).
It is my understanding that copper coins (tongbo) were
used along with debt notes and silver bars, but my
knowledge is lacking in this area. I would appreciate
Was the use of currency limited?
What other coins & currency forms were used? What was
Was paper currency used?
What was their comparative value?
Where Ming coins accepted in Choson, or did merchants
have to convert them to local currency?
What was the exchange rate between Choson and Ming
Thank you for your time,
