Each of the 2017 1 oz Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang silver coins in this listing comes with a perfect grade from the NGC. Coins that earn the PF70 certification exhibit full, original mint luster and lack any signs of detracting flaws on the surface areas or design elements of the coin.
The UCAM, or Ultra-cameo, designation is used for proof coinage with a beautiful visual finish. A UCAM coin has strong, frosted matte finishes on the design elements and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. The combined elements give the effect of the design features floating over the background field.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang is the battle shield used by Chiwoo in wars. It depicts the effigy of Do ggae bi, a feared creature whose face was hung from the end of roof tiles to help ward off evil spirits. The engravings include a latent security image at the bottom with the purity of the silver included within the circle.
The reverse of the Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang features the depiction of Chiwoo on horseback. Riding into battle astride his warhorse, Chiwoo bears a long shield while he holds a battle spear in his right hand. The only engraving on this side of the coin includes his name.
KOMSCO’s issue of the Chiwoo Cheonwang in 2016 marked the introduction of a new face value concept. The coins do not feature a true monetary unit of measurement, but rather a historic concept of land as valuable. The use of “1 Clay” denotes the value of a parcel of land now used on a silver coin.
