When the South Korean Tiger Medal series debuted it was primarily available in 1 oz gold and 1/10 oz gold bullion. Like other collections from KOMSCO, the design on the medals has changed with time to capture the powerful tiger in different imagery. The series has now grown to feature both gold and silver options.
The South Korean tiger is the colloquial name on the Korean peninsula for the Siberian tiger species. Though it is now limited to its original Siberian range in Russia and the northeast of China, the Siberian tiger once roamed as far south as the very southern tip of the Korean peninsula. The last wild Korean tiger is believed to have been killed in 1921 or 1922.
The obverse face of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Latent South Korean Tiger Medals includes a tiger using its massive claws to rip through the design element. In the background behind the tiger and in the tear marks, you will notice the latent security lines included in the design element of the medal.
On the reverse side of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Latent South Korean Tiger Medals is a depiction of the Korean peninsula. In this design, the peninsula is formed through the use of the letters from the Hangul, the Korean language alphabet. The background field on this side of the coin also boasts the latent security lines, as well as the latent security mark KOMSCO uses on all of its bullion products.
These 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Latent South Korean Tiger Medals include a protective capsule for the medal and a black presentation display to house your product. Each one comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity from KOMSCO.
