Doctored 500 won coins found

The photo shows doctored South Korean 500-won coins police confiscated from a man arrested in Hiroshima on Jan. 27. Lim Seng Chua, who identified himself as Malaysian, was found possessing some 670 such coins. The coins were filed down with drill holes to match the weight of Japanese 500 yen coins. A 500 won coin is the same in size as a 500 yen coin but is less than one-tenth in value of its Japanese counterpart. ==Kyodo
