The Siberian tiger once roamed vast stretches of the Korean peninsula, Manchuria, China, Mongolia, Siberia and the Russian Far East. The largest tiger species in the world, the Siberian tiger is now limited to the Russian Far East and Northeastern China. The last living Korean tiger on the peninsula was killed in the wild by hunters in 1921.
All 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals in this listing come with a sealed protective assay card. The card includes information such as the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number for the individual gold medals. Each one is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from KOMSCO.
The sealed assay cards for the 2019 Gold South Korean Tiger Medals include two different colors. KOMSCO has split the 2019 1/10 oz mintage of 3,000 gold medals across red assay labels and these blue assay labels, with just 1,500 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals available in the blue label.
The obverse side of 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals bears the design of a Korean tiger. With its ferocious growl depicted in the background and its mouth open exposing its deadly teeth, the tiger reaches forward toward the viewer with a paw to gash the design field with its claws. The long, sharp claws leave two gouges down the vertical field of the medal.
On the reverse of 2019 1/10 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals is the Korean peninsula. This isn’t your average map of the peninsula with political boundaries or geographic features. KOMSCO offers a stylized depiction of the peninsula on the South Korean Tiger Medals that uses the letters of the Hangul, Korea’s alphabet, to shape the peninsula.
