The South Korean Tiger Series of gold and silver medals features a variety of weights for any investor. The design of the Korean tiger, as it is known locally, is really that of a Siberian tiger. Once the largest living tiger species, many Siberian tigers now grow to smaller sizes because of scarce food sources and illegal hunting when larger tigers come in contact with populated areas.
All 2018 1/10 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals from KOMSCO ship individually inside of a sealed assay card packaging. The assay card bears the same image of the tiger from the obverse of the gold medals, with the only difference being the colorful design of the tiger on the card. The assay cards feature the name of the coin series, weight, purity, metal content, and the serial number of the individual medal.
On the obverse side of 2018 South Korean Tiger Gold Medals is the image of a tiger as it carefully stalks its prey from behind a wall of bamboo. The medals weight, year of issue, and the name Korean Tiger are engraved on this face. Siberian tigers are confined to Far Eastern Russia and northeastern China today, but these large cats once roamed as far south as the southernmost tip of the Korean peninsula.
Historically, the Siberian tiger has been referred to by various names depending on the region in which individual members of the species were observed. Other names include Manchurian tiger, Amur tiger, and Ussurian tiger, in addition to Korean tiger. The last wild spotting of a Korean tiger occurred near Mount Daeduk in 1922.
The reverse of 2018 1/10 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals features the Korean peninsula in a stylized design. This artistic rendition includes the whole of the Korean peninsula with no border between North and South. The letters of the shared Korean alphabet are used to form the shape of the peninsula in the design.
