2020 1 oz Silver South Korea Taekwondo BU
The Republic of Korea and KOMSCO take exceptional pleasure in announcing this second release in their Taekwondo series with this 2020 1 oz Silver South Korea Taekwondo BU coin release. As amazing as their inaugural 2019 circular kick release was, this 2020, In your face knock-out punch takes the series to a completely new level.
This perspective-based action scene is unequaled in any recent martial arts themed bullion coin offerings of which we are aware. Every aspect of this design is spot-on regarding the power of the deep focus involved in Taekwondo. The fist-punch displayed did not originate in the passionate emotional response of the combatant depicted. One glance at his expression demonstrates the quiet spirit out of which the punch was being delivered. This is a remarkable step forward in this new series, and one we hope to see expanded on in the years to come!
The obverse is consistent with the series, presenting a beautiful and active scene, featuring a Yin Yang symbol on the left center of the design. The darkness of the Yin is accented by slightly-angled fine, horizontal lines against the frosted background. The lightness of the Yang is from the unfrosted silver. A circle-inset fills the head of the Yang with the security feature of a latent image of the medallion’s fineness of “999” hidden within the fine vertical lines. The active part of the design is produced by swirls of heavier lines that appear to feed into the Yin from the top, and the Yang from the bottom. The overall design is very clean and attractive, with a nicely-textured frosted background. Inscriptions at the lower right include “2020” in a smaller type, with “KOREA” in a larger type stacked below.
The reverse is where the real action is! A young taekwondo fighter demonstrates a perfect upward, forward punch, originating from the center of his focused energy, ready to move in and finish the contest. Inscriptions include “TAEKWONDO . 1oz FINE SILVER 999.”
The nuances of this high-energy silver bullion medallion design captures with exceptional fineness the core of the martial art of Taekwondo. This is the benchmark of future offerings to come. Do not hesitate on this stellar 2nd edition of this fine series!
