The new Zi:Sin Series from KOMSCO is also known as the Twelve Guardians. For the Korean people, the belief in the Twelve Guardians reflected a collection of twelve commanders who would lead God’s army in the protection against evil forces coming from all 12 directions. This offered protection to the world from all directions at all times.
Gallus is the first release in the series, which features both silver and gold medals. The medals are available in this bullion release, as well as later releases of a proof version. Gallus is a messenger of light, displaying a light as bright as the sun.
The obverse of the 2017 1 oz South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Silver Medal features the image of Chiwoo Cheonwang’s battle shield. On the face of his shield is the head Do ggae bi, a mythical being referred to by some as a ghost or monster that was often hung at the ends of roof tiles on homes as a strong spiritual presence to ward off evil spirits. This face also contains the engravings of the nation of issue, mint mark, weight, purity, metal content, year of issue, and the latent security image of KOMSCO coins.
On the reverse of the South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Silver Medal features the image of Gallus. Dressed in full battle regalia, the light of Gallus on the battlefield helped to disperse the demons of the dark side. He also had a powerful roar that instilled fear in even the most evil demons, and the point of his helmet enabled him to foresee upcoming events.
