The primary design found on the obverse of the Gold South Korean Crowns, the Cheon-ma chong, focuses on the gold crowns of the Silla kingdom. In total, archaeologists have discovered six gold crowns dating to the Silla kingdom between the 5th and 7th centuries. Of these six, three have been designated as national treasures by the Republic of Korea, while the other three have been designated simply as treasures. The Cheon-ma chong is one of the three designated a national treasure in South Korea.
All of the 2020 1 oz Gold South Korean Crowns available to you in this product listing are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The gold medals are housed inside of protective plastic capsules for shipping and storing. KOMSCO issues these new gold medals with no mintage cap set, meaning there is plenty of opportunity for investors.
On the obverse of the 2020 Gold South Korean Crown is an image of the Cheon-ma chong, a three-pronged gold crown. The gold crown is depicted from the front with its three towering prongs forming the Chinese symbol for the mountain. The design on this medal includes the image of a heavenly horse running through the sky.
The inclusion of the heavenly horse in the design on this face of the medal is a nod to the place where the Cheon-ma chong crown was discovered. The crown was found in 1973 inside of the Heavenly Horse Tomb. The tomb is located in Gyeongju, South Korea, the former capital of the Silla kingdom. The tomb is said to date to the 5th century and the word Cheon-ma chong translates as “sky horse tomb.”
For the reverse design of the 2020 1 oz Gold South Korean Crown, the image of a three-legged crow with its swirling tail is featured. The three-legged crow appears throughout the mythology of several East Asian cultures, including Korean culture. The crow is known as Sam-jok-o, or Samjogo in Korean. It is considered a symbol of the sun and is used in reference to the sun god.
