The Korean tiger is a locally used name for the Siberian tiger. Previously the largest species of tiger currently living, the Siberian tiger was last spotted on the Korean peninsula in 1922. The last known living specimen in the region was killed near Mount Daeduk in 1922 and no Siberian tigers have been spotted in the wild since then across the peninsula.
For the reverse of 2018 1/4 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals, KOMSCO uses a beautiful, artistic rendition of the Korean peninsula. With no borders between North and South, the design uses the letters of the Korean alphabet to shape the peninsula and the medal also features a latent security mark to the right of the design and the national symbol for the Republic of Korea to the left.
