Stunning Chiwoo Cheonwang design
A closeup image of Chiwoo's shield is featured on the obverse of the medal. It bears a devilish face and is elaborately decorated. Also included are rim inscriptions that offer the date, purity, country and face value, "1 CLAY." The clay is a concept measurement developed by KOMSCO to link the value of land to the value of silver. It is not legal tender.
Chiwoo Cheonwang, the mascot of the South Korean soccer team, can be found on the reverse. Chiwoo, who is also the god of war, is in full body armor and on horseback. He bears a shield and a spear. His name, "CHIWOO CHEONWANG," is inscribed in the upper left.
