Chiwoo Cheonwang is a symbol of South Korea that is often depicted solely using his fearsome mask. In Korean lore, the legend of Chiwoo Cheonwang is that of the God of War. He is said to wear a demon-like mask and cast magical spells on individuals while yielding his large shield. Some say his powers include the ability to control the weather.
A unique facet of these is the issue of “Clay” in the name. The 2017 1 oz South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang medal is not legal tender, but has a concept of measurement known as clay, which indicates a certain amount of land. Therefore, the theory in purchasing 1 Troy oz of these silver products amounts to a certain amount of land.
The obverse of the 2017 issue of these silver coins mirrors the first year’s issue. You’ll find the impressively detailed image of Cheonwang’s fearsome mask, with engravings of the year of issue, metal content, weight, and nation of issue.
On the reverse of the Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver medal for 2017 is a slight variation to the original design. The returning features include that of Chiwoo Cheonwang in his full armor with his mask on while he holds onto a large shield and spear in either hand. The addition for the 2017 release is that of his figure mounted on a large, powerful warhorse.
Each of the 2017 1 oz South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang medals in this listing are in BU condition.
