The use of Chiwoo Cheonwang in this collectible series from KOMSCO brings back a legendary figure from Chinese and Korean cultural lore. Many of the exploits attributed to his god-like status are the result of inflation over time. In real life, Chiwoo was a leader of one of the nine tribes of China and is considered a founding father of the nation. In Korean lore, his exploits on the battlefield earned him the label the God of War and brought with it mythical status.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Coin is the God of War himself atop his warhorse. He wields a long spear in his right hand and holds his powerful, oversized shield in his left. It is said that Chiwoo could control the weather and other elements, obscuring the vision of his enemies in battle and tipping the scales in favor of his armies.
The obverse of Proof Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang coins includes a closer look at the shield of Chiwoo. Upon its surface is the hideous face of Do ggae bi, a mythical beast from Korean lore who was said to have the power to ward off other evil spirits with his presence.
