These bullion gold medals are available in 1 oz gold each year, with 1/10 oz options offered in many years as well.

KOMSCO offers a new reverse design in the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series each year. While the silver and gold versions of the medal share the same annual design, there is a new release with each passing year. The 2019 design is the first to adopt an almost serene depiction of the feared warrior and God of War.
The reverse of 2019 1 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals features the God of War in the aftermath of a battle. After what was no doubt another victory, Chiwoo is shown standing on a rocky plateau as he takes stock of the cost of his victory. His helmet is removed as he rests his right hand on his shield at his side and clutches the handle of his large sword as it rests tip-down to his left.
On the obverse of 2019 Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals is the image of Do ggae bi. This grotesque figure dates back centuries in Korean culture and is believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits. So deep is the faith in this ability that many Korean people would hang his effigy from the roofing tiles of their home to keep evil away.
KOMSCO is the official mint of South Korea. Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation is a government-owned corporation founded in October 1951 to offer the Republic of Korea control over the printing of its currency, striking of coins, and production of official government papers, such as passports.
