In 2016 and 2017, KOMSCO launched a range of new bullion collections available to investors around the world, including the North American market. The most visible of these was, at first, the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series. Like other popular bullion collections, it features new reverse images each year with a stable obverse design from one year to the next. Over time, the Chiwoo Series has grown from 1 oz gold and silver options to include 2 oz and 10 silver, as well as these 1/10 oz gold bullion medals.
Other collections from KOMSCO that follow a similar path are the Korean Tiger and Zi:Sin Series. In the case of the Zi:Sin Series, the same obverse design of Do ggae bi is used, while both the Zi:Sin and Korean Tiger collections use new reverse designs.
The obverse of these 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions features a depiction of the shield that Chiwoo Cheonwang used with a design of Do ggae bi on its face. The grotesque figure is similar to the hobgoblin of Western society and is believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits.
On the reverse side of 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions is a depiction of Chiwoo Cheonwang. Previous designs have shown investors the God of War preparing for war, rallying his forces, and leading his troops in battle. This design is far more peaceful and captures a reflective Chiwoo assessing the hard-earned gains of battle.
These 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallions are available to you with a sealed, blue assay card that includes the Certificate of Authenticity information for the gold medal. This release includes 5,000 medals in total, but just 1,250 medals are housed inside of these blue assay cards.
