Why purchase this 2 oz Silver Incuse 2018 South Korea Chiwoo Cheonwang Medal?

Since it hosted the 1988 Summer Olympics, South Korea has emerged as a global economic power. It is among the global leaders in technology and has also grown in other areas, such as the automotive industry. Two years ago, the small yet powerful nation made its first foray into the world of bullion with its new Chiwoo Cheonwang series. Now, this incuse Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medal brings some novelty to what the country has to offer. Part of a mintage of just 15,000 pieces, this coin was struck from two ounces of .999 fine silver at KOMSCO. It will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Stunning Chiwoo Cheonwang Design

The obverse bears a roof tile known as Gwi Myeon Wa from the Silla Dynasty. It bears the face of Do Ggae Bi, a creature who many believed warded off evil spirits. The medal bears a unique face value, which is measured in clay. Clay comes from the two materials, earth and dirt, that constitute Gwi Myeon Wa. Below the tile is a unique security feature that makes counterfeiting this coin extremely difficult. Rim inscriptions include but are not limited to "2018 FINE SILVER 999" and "REPUBLIC OF KOREA."

On the reverse is the last thing that an opponent of Chiwoo Cheonwang would see on the battle field. The fierce god of war, who serves as the mascot for the supporters of the country's national soccer team, wields his sword while riding on horseback, preparing to slay his opponent. His name, "CHIWOO CHEONWANG," is inscribed along the rim.
