Purchased from a set of foreign banknotes. Does anyone know what it means/says?

"Chinese, not Korean" No this is not completely true. Korea used hanja (Chinese Characters) for a very long time on pretty much everything from official financial documents like this to postcards. Additionally, the mythical animal on the front as well as the round stamps were used by both the Chinese and the Koreans.

These characters are written in a very old style of hanja, so I can only pull out a few, but on the right side it says
"total price" or "cost/charge", literally "inner money" or how much is being paid out as a partial payment/deposit, and "change" or money left over (possibly to be paid later). So, its definitely some type of financial document or record.
