A hallmark of other collections from KOMSCO is the use of new designs each year. One side of the Korean Tiger, Chiwoo Cheonwang, and Zi:Sin Series of bullion medals has a new design each year, with a static image on the other. The Korean Phoenix, on the other hand, uses the same two designs of the phoenix on the obverse and reverse each year. One element of the Korean Phoenix that is distinctive is its security element.
On the obverse of the 2021 Gold South Korean Phoenix, you will find a security element that has been engraved on the piece. As you move the medal in your hand, the image you see in this security element changes between the Korean symbols for Bong and Hwang, the Korean words for the mythical phoenix.
The obverse design on the 1 oz Gold South Korean Phoenix depicts the mythical bird. In this design, the phoenix swoops into view with its beautiful wings spread around the entire design field and its long, ornate tail wrapping down along the bottom of the design element.
On the reverse side of 2021 1 oz Gold South Korean Phoenix Medals, you will find a design inspired by the seal of the President of the Republic of Korea. This design features two of the birds, one in left-profile relief and the other in right-profile relief as they look inward at the Taeguk, the official national seal.
