Gallus leads off the new Zi:Sin Series from KOMSCO. The collection focuses on the Korean lore of the Twelve Guardians. Assigned by god as the commanders of his armies, it is their responsibility to help protect the world from the forces of evil. When danger strikes, these commanders stand ready at all twelve directions to ward off evil.
The Gallus Medal release is available in silver and gold bullion issues, with subsequent proof medals to be struck as well. Gallus is the first, the other guardians to come in the form of Canis as the next release.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Gold South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Medal is the image of Chiwoo Cheonwang’s battle shield. On the face of his shield you’ll find the grotesque image of Do ggae bi. Similar to the hob-goblin of Western culture, Do ggae bi was often hung from the ends of tile roofs on Korean homes to ward off evil spirts that might haunt or otherwise harm inhabitants.
The reverse of the Gold South Korean Gallus Medal features the depiction of the messenger of light himself, Gallus. His figure is large and burly, wearing full battle armor and wielding a massive spear. His tall helmet gives him the power to foresee the future, and with the control of a bright light, he can summon a blinding light that scares off the forces of evil on the battlefield.
KOMSCO, or Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation, is the mint of the Republic of Korea. The South Korean government relies on KOMSCO to produce bullion and circulation coinage, as well as banknotes, cheques, stamps, and even passports.
