On the obverse of the South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Silver Medal youll find the shield of Chiwoo Cheonwang, with the face of Do ggae bi upon it. Similar to the hob-goblin of Western cultures, Do ggae bi is a grotesque individual who is referred to simultaneously as either a ghost, monster, or god. His fearsome look was often used to help frighten away other evil spirits.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Silver Medal features the depiction of Gallus in battle. He is known as the messenger of light and is capable of summoning a light so bright that the armies of evil quickly disappear. Gallus is also said to possess the ability to unleash a powerful roar to frighten enemies.
