2020 Silver 1 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallion BU
We are certain that you will join BOLD in our excitement at the news of the 5th release of the highly popular South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang bullion series. From its first release in 2016, each annual design has clearly demonstrated stunningly imaginative views of this magnificent historic warrior, to whom much fable has been attributed over the centuries. The impeccable production we have come to expect from KOMSCO Mint, coupled with the very limited mintage should make this brand new 2020 Silver 1 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallion BU jump right to the top of your Must Have list!
Do ggae bi!
The obverse, though common to the series, is anything but common! Displayed in exquisite detail is Do ggae bi (or, Dokkaebi), which should always be pronounced with an exclamation point! Do ggae bi (!) is a mythical figure from Korean lore that had the power to protect from evil spirits. The design displayed for this 2020 release has been completely updated, adding more detailed nuances along with a set of curved horns. The new image is based upon a patterned tile housed in the National Museum of the Republic of Korea.
Inscriptions include “REPUBLIC OF KOREA” encircling the top rim, and “2020 FINE SILVER 999” at the left rim, with “1 CLAY” at the right. Below the image is a unique, latent image engraving, that very faintly displays, “999” in a small circle. “KOMSCO” is inscribed at the bottom rim.
Interestingly, the “1 Clay” is a new measurement developed by KOMSCO. It references 1 unit of 1 troy oz of the metal. The word clay is considered to be of the soil, out of which the metal was derived.
Chiwoo ‑ God of War!
The reverse of this 2020 Silver 1 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Medallion BU depicts an incredibly detailed mountain scene, featuring Chiwoo Cheonwang in full battle armor protecting his shoulders and chest. His helmet has two sharp horns attached, which reference further mythological aspects associated with Chiwoo. His massive sword fills his right hand, while his large shield protects at his left. His large cloak flows behind him as he stands firm upon the rugged terrain. Chiwoo Cheonwang’s full attention remains fixed upon the chained gates cut into the mountainside, that are recounted to be the sealed hell gate. As with previous releases, only his name is inscribed at the mid-point of the right rim. This is truly a finely executed design that captures with imaginative skill the tenseness of the moment Chiwoo Cheonwang faces!
