Beautifully Magnificent Creature
The obverse of this 2018 Silver 10 oz South Korean Tiger features a large Siberian tiger crouching at the water’s edge, refreshing himself. He is surrounded by lush vegetation, with a somewhat rough, mountainous background sprawling into the distance. The overall effect of the scene is striking, centering the focus directly upon the powerful bulk of this beautiful, wild Siberian tiger. Inscriptions include “KOREAN TIGER” encircling the left rim at the mid-point. Also included at the left is “10 oz 2018” stacked, with a fine line separating.
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. while the overall stylistic effect is very striking! An attractive 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 unique anti-counterfeiting security feature of a latent image engraving, which very faintly displays, “Ag 999” super-imposed in a small circle. To the right is the national emblem, which is typically displayed on the Republic of Korea’s flag. A rugged, textured pattern fills the entire reverse, adding much to the overall effect of the design.
With this being an extremely low mintage of only 2,000, and the inaugural edition of the large, 10 oz silver companion to the on-going silver and gold Korean Tiger series, you definitely should not delay!
