Why buy this South Korea 2018 ZI:SIN Canis Silver Medal
Collectors looking for a unique series from an up and coming mint would do well to get this 2018 Silver Canis Medal. It is part of the second issue in Korea Minting, Security Printing and ID Card Operating Corporation's (KOMSCO's) new ZI:SIN Series. Part of a mintage of 33,000 pieces, it was struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver.
Powerful Canis Design
A "do ggae bi" serves as the obverse design. The grotesque figure is often hung on both ends of roof tiles as a strong good spirit to chase away the evil ones. Inscriptions offer the coin's weight, purity, country, and face value. That face value is "1 CLAY," a unique denomination that KOMSCO created for the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series.
The reverse features Canis, a human figure who wears an animal-head helmet. He is known as a defender of God and staying alert at all times. He is also the spearhead of God's army when it goes to fight against the forces of evil. "ZI:SIN" and "CANIS," the series and coin names, are inscribed in the lower left.
Virtually Flawless MS69 with South Korea Label
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this medal is in Mint State 69 condition. That means that it appears perfect to the naked eye. NGC provided that grade on a South Korea label, which bears the country's flag.
