His jaws are open wide, revealing his ready fangs. Yet, even as deadly fearsome these features are, what really drives the amazing power of this scene is the action!
The tiger is shown ripping through a barrier with his massive razor-sharp claws to get to his victim. This magnificent creature is displayed with the finest of detail in a strikingly imaginative scene, capturing the moment before pouncing for the attack. Inscriptions include “KOREAN TIGER 2019” at the top left rim, and the weight of 1 oz at the bottom right.
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.
