The Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Series from KOMSCO bears a new design on the reverse side each year. The first issue in the collection had a design of Chiwoo Cheonwang standing on the field of battle with a spear in his hand and his shield at his side. The 2017 design includes Chiwoo in the same battle armor and weaponry, but this time he is mounted on horseback.
2017 1/2 oz Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang coins are a new issue in the collection and mark the first-ever fractional-weight coin in the collection. KOMSCO has a very low mintage figure for these fractional weights and offers all of the same beauty through the design as its 1 oz counterparts.
On the obverse side of all Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang coins is an image of Do ggae bi. This figure dates back to the 7th century and the Silla Dynasty, known in Korean as Gwi-myeon-wa. The figure’s face was often used on a roof tile in the center of the design. The image of Do ggae bi has been popular on Korean homes for centuries because of the belief his face can ward off evil spirits.
The reverse of all 2017 1/2 oz Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang coins includes the latest design of the God of War. Korean society believes that Chiwoo was the head of state of Shinshi, the first ancient state of Korea. Chiwoo’s depiction is set to change each year on this side of the coins, with the 2017 similar to the design of 2016. The primary difference is Chiwoo now mounted on horseback.
