Chiwoo Cheonwang is known as the God of War in Korean lore, and it is also said that his abilities include control over the weather and elements. He is particularly well-known for the fearsome mask he wears on his face, which in the modern day has been adopted by South Korean soccer fans to cheer on their beloved national team.
On the obverse of 2017 1 oz Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Coins you’ll find a slight variation on the original 2016 design. While both coins feature the full-figure depiction of Cheonwang in his full armor, these 2017 coins now depict him seated atop a mighty warhorse.
The reverse of the Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang coins includes only the depiction of his fearsome mask. These coins have the term “Clay” in the name because they are not legal tender coins with a specific denomination. However, Korean lore uses the term clay to refer to the earth or soil, meaning the purchase of a 1 Troy ounce coin results in 1 Clay of soil or land purchased.
