Taekwondo is an elaborate fighting sport that involves a variety of kicks, punches, and joint-locks. While this Martial Art didn’t become popular in Western culture until the 1960s, it is believed by historians to have existed in Asia for at least 2000 years. The modern version of Taekwondo we know today originated in the 1940s thanks to Korean General Choi Hong Hi. While there are Taekwondo masters who compete in the Olympics today, this Martial Art is also practiced on a more general level by students who learn basic moves and tenets of the form to improve their daily life.
The Taegeuk is featured on the obverse of 2021 1 oz South Korean Taekwondo Medals. This is a red and blue Yin-Yang symbol that is found on the South Korean flag. The word also refers to a set of offense and defense moves in Taekwondo. On the symbol is a latent security device that reveals the medal’s purity when shifted left or right. The words 2021 Korea are inscribed on the obverse as well.
A Taekwondo Martial Artist is showcased on the reverse side of 2021 Silver South Korean Taekwondo Medals. This fighter appears in a crouching position as he smashes his fist through a pile of boards.
