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.

Falco tinnunculus, or the kestrel, featured in the 210-won definitives is a falcon of permanent residence across the nation. Its body stretches approximately 30 cm and male kestrels are slightly smaller than the females. They build nests in rock walls on riversides and between walls of buildings where they lay their eggs.
