The Korean Tiger Series from KOMSCO was first released in 2016 and features new designs of the Siberian tiger on the obverse. Also known as the Amur tiger throughout China and the Korean peninsula, the largest member of the tiger species once had a range that stretched from northeastern Russia down through China and to the very southern tip of the Korean peninsula. Today, however, there are just 400 Siberian tigers known to exist in the wild, with most of these animals living in the Far Eastern portions of Russia.
On the obverse side of 2018 1 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Coins is the image of a massive and powerful tiger stalking its prey. The beast lurks behind a wall of bamboo bushes and carefully prowls for an unsuspecting victim. Tigers reached as far as Jindo Island in the South Jeolla Province of South Korea and only recently in human history disappeared. The last confirmed sighting of the beasts, by hunters, in this region came in 1922 when a tiger was killed by a group of hunters.
The reverse of 2018 Gold South Korean Tigers includes a very beautiful rendition of the Korean peninsula. This artistic vision uses the characters of the Korean language to form the shape of the peninsula and ignores political boundaries to present the image of a peninsula culturally and historically linked together as one.
