The first major silver bullion collection from the Republic of Korea, or South Korea, was introduced in 2016 as the Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang collection. One year later, the mint rolled on with a new series known as the Zi:Sin collection featuring 12 distinct designs representing the Twelve Guardians of Korean myth. Now, the two are together as one with Zi:Sin privy marks on the Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang.

The Chiwoo Cheonwang Series from KOMSCO features new designs on the reverse side each year. The designs follow Chiwoo Cheonwang and his preparations for battle as he awaits his horse, mounts his powerful ride, and eventually rides into battle in this 2018 design. Joining Chiwoo Cheonwang in the reverse design for the Zi:Sin privy marks is Gallus in this design.
The Zi:Sin Series debuted in 2017 with Gallus as the first of 12 designs planned for the reverse of coins in that collection. Zi:Sin stands for the Twelve Guardians, a Korean cultural lore that is similar to the Chinese lunar calendar. The Twelve Guardians protect the world from evil emanating from the 12 directions. Gallus is one of god’s most important warriors and possesses unique powers in the fight against evil.
On the obverse of 2018 1 oz Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals is the image of Do ggae bi, the grotesque figure featured on the battle shield of Chiwoo to strike fear in the heart of his enemies. Do ggae bi is believed to possess the power to ward off evil and was previously hung from roofing tiles to protect Korean homes from evil’s presence.
The reverse of 2018 1 oz Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Gallus Privy Medals features two designs. The primary one is that of Chiwoo riding into battle on his horse and lowering his sword to strike down enemies. The other is the privy mark representing Gallus from the Zi:Sin Series.
These 2018 Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Gallus Privy Medals are all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The medals arrive in protective packaging, mint tubes of 25, or boxes of 250.
