The designs in the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series are more than just a collection of new designs each year. KOMSCO changes the designs with a purpose in mind for each year. The goal is to present the famed God of War from Korean culture throughout his process to prepare for and head into battle.
For example, the debut design in 2016 depicted Chiwoo just after he put on his full complement of battle armor. In the 2017 release, he is depicted mounted on his horse and prepared to ride off into battle. 2018 depicted him in the thick of the action as he sought to strike down his enemies. The 2019 design showcases Chiwoo in the aftermath of the battle.
On the obverse of the 2019 10 oz Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medal is an image of the hobgoblin figure Do ggae bi. This grotesque figure is on the obverse of all Chiwoo Cheonwang medals each year and is the same image found on Chiwoo’s battle shield, no doubt an effort to strike fear in the hearts of his enemies during battle.
The reverse side of 2019 10 oz Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals comes with a fresh depiction of Chiwoo Cheonwang. Here, he is featured standing on the battlefield as he surveys the aftermath. Chiwoo is said to have gone 10 years in battle without losing a fight and he no doubt is surveying yet another win in this design field.
2019 Silver South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals are available in individual flips with each specimen in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
