Description
With the adjustment in the postal rates effective as of January 15, 2002, new definitives will be issued as follows: 160-won definitives for non-priority postcards (under 5g), 210-won definitives for non-priority mail (under 50g), 280-won definitives for nonstandard non-priority mail, 1,290-won definitives for registered mail (under 25g) and 1,310-won definitives for registered mail (under 50g). The basic 190-won definitives for non-priority mail (under 25g) now in use will continue to be used.

The 160-won definitives feature the Limenitis populi (Linnaeus), the popular admiral butterfly. The wings of these butterflies are the longest among all striped butterflies at 70 to 80 mm. The female butterflies are larger than their male counterparts and have a wider white band in the wings. These butterflies live in valleys in high mountains or at the borders of forests.
