The 1/10 oz gold coin was the first fractional-weight addition. Right now, 2018 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions are available to purchase online at Silver.com with the unique red-label assay card.

The 2018 release of Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions from KOMSCO is one of the most robust to date in the three-year-old series. The 2018 collection includes the familiar 1 oz silver, 1 oz gold, and 1/10 oz gold medallions, along with new weights such as 2 oz silver and two new fractional-weight gold options: 1/2 and 1/4 oz.
On the reverse of 2018 Gold Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions is the image of Do ggae bi. To ancient Chinese and Korean cultures, Do ggae bi was something of a hobgoblin. It was said that his grotesque appearance was enough to ward off any evil spirits. This was so deeply believed that people would hang his effigy from roofing tiles on their homes as a form of protection from evil.
The obverse of 2018 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions features the bust of Chiwoo Cheonwang. In this design, you’ll find Chiwoo on his warhorse as he rides onto the field of battle leading his troops from the front. Each design in this series progressively takes the viewer through a battle with Chiwoo, with this particular design delivering the enemy’s viewpoint before Chiwoo cuts them down.
KOMSCO was founded in 1951 in Seoul, South Korean in the midst of the Korean War. The government-owned entity is the official mint and government document manufacturer for the Republic of Korea.
