All of the 2020 1 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwangs in this product listing are available inside of individual plastic capsules. KOMSCO issues each on in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and has increased the mintage cap in 2020 by 100 gold medals. The 2019 release had a mintage of 1,500 compared to this year’s 1,600.
Changes come in 2020 not only to the reverse field but also to the image of Do ggae bi used on the obverse of the medals. While the overall design of the obverse remains the same, with Do ggae bi’s face on a battle shield and the latent security feature of KOMSCO included below, the depiction of Do ggae bi’s face has changed.
On the obverse of 2020 Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwangs is a depiction of a grinning, mischievous Do ggae bi. The new facial depiction of Do ggae bi on this face accentuates the eyebrows, nostrils, and teeth more than previous issues and comes with the addition of large bull’s horns on the top of its head.
The reverse face of 2020 1 oz Gold South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwangs comes with a depiction of Chiwoo Cheonwang readying himself for battle against the forces of evil near the Hell Gate. This gate is said to have emerged from beneath his empire near the Salt Lake, threatening to unleash into the world. The God of War and guardian of peace, Chiwoo stands ready to fight for as long as needed to defeat evil.
