Each of these 2017 1 oz Proof Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang medals is available to you as a near-perfect specimen from the NGC. Medals with the PF69 certification exhibit full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited in scope and nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
The UCAM designation is a special label for proof coins with added visual brilliance. The strong, frosted matte finish of the design sets beautifully contrasts the deeply-mirrored, clear background field in a manner that gives the impression the designs are floating above the surface of the coin.
Chiwoo Cheonwang is revered both as a God of War and one of the founding fathers of China. His exploits on the battlefield include winning every battle he fought against rival tribes over a 10-year stretch, but it was the mythical attributes he was said to possess that give him icon status. It was believed he could control the weather, summon fog, and cloud the battlefield to the advantage of his soldiers.
The reverse of all Proof Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang medals includes a unique design for 2017. This year’s design captures Chiwoo wearing his full battle regalia as he sits astride his horse ready to ride into battle.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang medal is a common depiction in the collection. The image of Do ggae bi, a feared mythical beast, is found on the front of Chiwoo’s shield.
