Chiwoo Cheonwang is a significant figure in Ancient Chinese and Korean culture. Most Koreans may know him today as the face of the Red Devils, the official fan group of the Republic of Korea national men’s soccer team. Fans wear masks reminiscent of his face when supporting the team in friendly and competitive international games.
Ancient lore in the region identifies Chiwoo Cheonwang as the leader of one of the three founding tribes of China. A prolific warrior and leader of men, it is said that his forces never lost a battle over the course of 10 years of warfare. Even more, it is rumored that he had mythical powers to control the elements and summon fog on the battlefield to confuse enemy forces and give his side the upper hand.
The obverse of 2018 1/4 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals includes the shield that Chiwoo carries in battle. His massive protective shield has the face of Do ggae bi on its surface. This grotesque face comes from a mythical beast that could ward off evil forces. Korean people would, historically, use the face of Do ggae bi to keep evil spirits away from the house.
On the reverse of 2018 Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals is the image of the God of War. In this latest design release, he fearlessly rides into battle on his warhorse with his sword unsheathed and ready to cut down any enemies that get in his path.
