The 2016 issue year for KOMSCO was a big one on the international stage. The official mint of the Republic of Korea debuted the popular Chiwoo Cheonwang collection and a distinct national issue featuring the image of a Korean tiger. The South Korean Tiger Medals are available now in both gold and silver, but started with a gold option first in 2016. Right now, you’ll find 2018 1/2 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Medal Highlights:

  • Ships to you with a protective plastic capsule, KOMSCO display box, and a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Third issue year of the Gold South Korean Tiger!
  • Mintage limited to 4,036 medals only!
  • Consists of One-Half Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold in BU condition.
  • A Korean tiger is depicted along with bamboo on the obverse.
  • The Korean peninsula is featured in an artistic rendition on the reverse.

Each of the 2018 1/2 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals you can purchase here today comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are uniquely housed with a protective plastic capsule around the coin and the capsule set within a KOMSCO display box. Each one also includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, both of which are rare packaging and numbering options for gold bullion issues.

The Korean tiger is important to the people of Korea. Although the large cats have not roamed the wilds of the Korean peninsula since 1922, the species features prominently in Korean literature, art, and sculpting. In fact, the tiger is mentioned numerous times in the foundation mythology of Korea.

On the obverse of all 2018 1/2 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals is the image of a tiger stalking its prey from behind a wall of bamboo. The tiger has its mouth open and is ready to launch its attack at any moment.

The reverse face of 2018 Gold South Korean Tiger Medals includes an artistic depiction of the Korean peninsula. Here, the peninsula is depicted without borders and created using the letters of the Korean alphabet to fill in the shape of the peninsula itself. The medal has a latent security image on the right of the design, with the purity of “9999” featured inside, and the national symbol of South Korea to the left.

KOMSCO stands for Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation. This government-owned entity serves as the official mint for the Republic of Korea, or South Korea, and was established in 1951 to provide stable and independent coining for the nation at the outset of the Korean War.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
