The Chiwoo Cheonwang Series of silver and gold medals debuted in 2016 with a depiction of Chiwoo on a silver medal that had a total bullion mintage of 30,000. The proof issues during the first release year had a mintage matching the issue year of 2,016 just as these 2017 specimens have the mintage figure matching the issue year.
South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang medals all have a new reverse design each year. The first depiction captured Chiwoo standing on the field of battle with his armor and a spear, while this new design features him on a horse riding into battle with that same armor and spear.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang is the depiction of Do ggae bi on the shield of Chiwoo. Do ggae bi was a mythical beast similar to the hobgoblin of Western societies. His hideous image is believed to ward off other evil spirits and was once hung from the end of roofing tiles to protect homes from evil.
The reverse of the Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang medals depicts the famed God of War astride his battle horse. He wears body armor to protect himself and wields a long spear in his right hand.
All 2017 1 oz Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals available here are near-perfect specimens. The medals earned PF69 grades which indicate the presence of the full, original mint luster and a total of two minor detracting flaws possible. These flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines though.
The Ultra-cameo, or UCAM designation is for proof coins with beautiful visual finishes. The background field is deeply-mirrored and clean, while the design elements have a strong, frosted matte appearance.
