Mintage of the medal was capped at 50,000 pieces.
Stunning Chiwoo Cheonwang design
A closeup view of Chiwoo's shield serves as the design on the obverse. The devilish face on it looks directly at the holder. Rim inscriptions include the date, purity, country and unique face value, "1 CLAY." The clay is a unique concept measurement meant to equate the value of silver with a certain amount of land. Created by KOMSCO, it is not a legal tender currency.
Chiwoo Cheonwang, who is the mascot of South Korea's soccer team, the Red Devils, sits on horseback on the reverse. Chiwoo is also the god of war. He is in full body armor and holds a spear and a shield. "CHIWOO CHEONWANG" is inscribed along the rim.
