The designs of the South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang collection have changed each year to date since the 2016 issue. The first year’s issue depicted Chiwoo in his battle armor with a spear as he stood on the field of battle. For the second year of issue, he was put astride his horse as he rode toward the field of battle. The 2018 1 oz Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang has yet another new design.
On the reverse of these 2018 Silver South Korean Chiwoo medals is the new image of Chiwoo for the 2018 release. He is depicted on his warhorse as he wields a large sword capable of splitting a man in half. This new design focuses intently on Chiwoo himself rather than his figure amongst the surroundings.
The obverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver South Korean Chiwoo medals bears the shield of Chiwoo Cheonwang. The God of War carried a shield in battle that featured the image of Do ggae bi, a creature regarded as similar to the hobgoblin of Western cultures. Do ggae bi’s image was once hung from the end of roofing tiles on homes to ward off evil spirits.
