The won (원) (sign: ₩; code: KRW) is the currency of South Korea. A single won is divided into 100 jeon, the monetary subunit. The jeon is no longer used for everyday transactions, and appears only in foreign exchange rates.
Alternatively, the backslash (U+005C \ ) is used on Microsoft Windows and the fullwidth form (U+FFE6 ￦ ) is used on Mac OS. In many South Korean fonts for Windows, the backslash has the shape of the Won sign including system fonts such Gulim (굴림) and Malgun Gothic (맑은 고딕).
