Unique Canis Design
Do ggae bi serves as the obverse design. The ugly creature is akin to a hob-goblin of Western culture. It is often hung on roof tiles as a means of warding off evil spirits. There are several inscriptions on this face, including the unique face value that KOMSCO uses, "1 CLAY."
Canis, a loyal guardian and leader, is on the reverse. The creature has a human form but, like his counterparts, has an animal helmet, in his case, a dog. "ZI:SIN CANIS" is inscribed along the rim.
