The Korean tiger is not a specific species, but rather a local dialect reference used for the Siberian tiger. At its height, the Siberian tiger population was spread throughout northeastern Russia, China, Mongolia, and down to the very southern point of the Korean peninsula. The last known wild Korean tiger is said to have been killed in 1922.
On the reverse side of the 2019 1 oz Silver Korean Tiger Medal is a depiction of the Korean peninsula. This design is an artistic rendition that leaves aside topographical features and political boundaries on the peninsula to instead focus on the shared Korean language. The figures that constitute the shape of the Korean peninsula come from the Korean alphabet.
The obverse face of the 2019 1 oz Silver South Korean Tiger Medal includes a new design for the 2019 Silver Tiger Medals. This year’s design is an aggressive rendition of the Korean tiger as it uses one paw to slice through the design field of the medal. The large cat’s claws rip gashes into the bottom of the visual field and the tiger’s face growls as it exposes its deadly sharp teeth.
KOMSCO is the Republic of Korea’s official mint. The company is responsible for everything from bullion coin production and the printing of paper banknotes to printing passports for South Korea.
