The Bank of Korea announced in early 2006 its intention to redesign the 10 won coin by the end of that year. With the increasing manufacturing price, then at 38 won per 10 won coin, and rumours that some people had been melting the coins to make jewellery, the redesign was needed to make the coin more cost effective to produce.
