2018 Silver 1 oz South Korean Tiger
The Republic of Korea and KOMSCO are pleased to announce that the Korean Tiger medallion series is now available in stunning .999 fine silver bullion. The gold series was introduced with great public acclaim in 2016. Now, with the companion offering of silver bullion, the stunning Korean Tiger series becomes accessible to silver collectors and investors. This inaugural 2018 Silver 1 oz South Korean Tiger is likely to become even more popular than the on-going gold series. We would expect that both silver and gold collectors will scramble to add them to their pristine collections!
The Korean Tiger bullion medallion series features a different tiger with each annual release. Korea is well known for its diverse species of Asian tigers. Undoubtedly fierce, and dangerous in the wild, they are nonetheless, beautifully magnificent creatures. This 2018 Silver 1 oz South Korean Tiger features a handsomely detailed Siberian Tiger, on the prowl passing through a stand of bamboo.
The scene displays a full-body image of the tiger pacing forward. His head is turned to his right, his jaws open in a low growl, exposing his fangs. His eyes are focused on something just outside of our view, likely his intended prey. His massive paws and sleek muscular strength is boldly portrayed. This is a truly striking design, worthy of your growing collection!
The reverse displays a remarkable design, using characters from the Korean alphabet to form the shape of the Korean Peninsula. The larger letters spell the country's official name. The overall stylistic effect is stunning! An attractive narrow band encircles the rim, which displays a pattern of the tiger's stripes. The inscriptions within the band include, "REPUBLIC OF KOREA" at the top rim, and "FINE SILVER 999" at the bottom. To the left of the peninsula design is the national emblem displayed on the Republic of Korea's flag. To the right is the unique anti-counterfeiting security feature of a latent image engraving, which very faintly displays, "999" in a small circle.

The Korean Tiger series was launched in 2016, offered only in 9999 fine gold. The series received immediate worldwide acclaim for the distinctive design and stunning production quality. The gold series' popularity has continued to increase through the 2017 edition. Now, with the introduction of the 999 fine silver companion edition, there is good reason to believe the overall series will be firmly established.
