Why purchase this Brilliant Uncirculated 2018 Chiwoo Cheonwang 1 oz. Silver Medal?
The Chiwoo Cheonwang Medal series was introduced in 2016 as the first silver bullion series produced by the Mint of South Korea (KOMSCO). The series pays homage to an important figure in Korean and Chinese culture, Chiwoo Cheonwang, whose name translates as "Chiwoo, King of Heaven." This magnificent 2018 bullion release is among a limited mintage of 40,000, each struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver measuring 40 mm in diameter.
Breathtaking Design Details
Chiwoo is featured on the reverse, seated on a swiftly moving warhorse with his sword drawn, dressed in elaborately detailed armor and a horned helmet. The image includes the inscription "CHIWOO CHEONWANG."
The obverse is dominated by a representation of the warrior's shield, which is adorned with the face of "Do ggae bi," a mythical, supernatural creature of Korean folklore known for its ability to ward off evil spirits. Inscriptions include "2018 FINE SILVER 999," "REPUBLIC OF KOREA" "1 CLAY," the KOMSCO logo and in a lenticular circle: "AG/999." The unique concept measurement of 1 clay is meant to equate the value of silver with a certain amount of land.
