These silver medals are unique for another reason too as they feature an incuse strike of the designs.
For the first time in the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series, the designs are available with an incuse relief. Standard coining consists of engraving design elements onto the surface of the coin. An incuse strike stamps the design into the surface of the coin, setting all design elements below the surface of the design field.
The obverse 2018 Silver South Korean Incuse Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals features the image of Do ggae bi. This figure’s grotesque appearance was used culturally by Koreans as a part of roofing tiles to ward off evil spirits. Chiwoo Cheonwang used the figure’s face on his shield to terrify his opponents in battle.
On the reverse of 2018 2 oz Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals is the third design in the series. This year’s imagery depicts Chiwoo on his horse as he charges into battle. He levels his sword to smite an opponent, with this view likely being the last that many of his enemies saw before he struck them down.
