The introduction of a 1/10 oz South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Gold Medallion marks the first expansion of this new series from KOMSCO.

With the introduction of the 2017 1/10 oz South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Gold Medallion KOMSCO offers new packaging for its gold medallions in this weight. The medallion arrives packaged inside of a sealed assay certificate card, which in this case is black in coloration and features the assay information on the reverse.
Of the 25,000 total mintage of the 1/10 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Gold Medallions, the products have been split across four different label colors. The white label package received 10,000 medallions from the total mintage, while the blue, red, and black label packages each include 5,000 medallions from the overall mintage for the 2017 1/10 oz issue.
The obverse of all 1/10 oz South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Gold Medallions features the image of Chiwoos battle shield. Emblazoned upon the shield itself is a reproduction of the facemask Chiwoo wore in battle. As a military leader, he is said to have been capable of casting magic spells to distract his foes and control the weather to the advantage of his forces.
On the reverse of the 2017 1/10 oz South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Gold Medallion is the figure of Chiwoo himself. While the 2016 debut issue featured Chiwoo standing on the ground in full armor, the 2017 tweak included mounting Chiwoo high upon his war horse with a spear in his right hand and his armor shield in his left.
