The Zi:Sin Series, or Twelve Guardians, focus on the commanders of God’s armies assigned to protect the twelve directions. Each of the 12 individuals is on duty to help god wipe out demons and cleanse the world of plague. Leading the armies of god onto the field of battle, the Twelve Guardians roam the battlefield using unique abilities to transform into different forms and fight the forces of evil with mythical powers.
On the reverse of all 2017 1 oz Gold South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Medals is the image of the guardian known to Korean culture as Gallus. The messenger of light, he can disperse demonic forces on the battlefield with a bright light and a powerful roar. His pointed helmet enables him to view the upcoming events of battle. Engravings on this face include only “Zi:Sin Gallus.”
The obverse of the Gold South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Medals feature the depiction of Do ggae bi. This grotesque mythical creature is thought of by many as a ghost, monster, or god. He is known to be similar to the hob goblins of Western culture, and his terrible face was used to scare away evil spirits when hung on the end roofing tiles of homes.
