    The tiger is a very important animal in Korean culture. The foundation mythology of Korea has strong references to the tiger and it also appears in folklore, art, and sculpture works. In fact, the tiger was the mascot of the 1988 Summer Olympics hosted in Seoul, South Korea. Right now, 2018 1/4 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

    • Limited mintage of only 4,036 medals!
    • Contains 1/4 Troy oz of .9999 pure gold in BU condition.
    • The obverse depicts a Korean tiger stalking its prey amidst the bamboo.
    • On the reverse is an artistic rendition of the Korean peninsula.

    Each 2018 1/4 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medal is available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Unlike other gold bullion issues, KOMSCO uses special packaging for its South Korean Gold Tiger medals. Each one is housed inside of a protective plastic capsule that rests inside of a KOMSCO display box. The medals also come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

    The tiger is vital to the history and culture of Korea. Not only is it found in various references to Korean foundation mythology, but it is also viewed as a guardian that can drive away evil spirits. As a sacred creature, it is believed to bring good luck and serves as a symbol of courage and absolute power.

    On the obverse of 2018 1/4 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals is the image of a massive tiger stalking its prey along a row of bamboo. The Korean tiger is a local name for what is really the Siberian tiger. Once the largest species of tiger, a title currently held by the Bengal species, the Siberian tiger had a historic range that included much of Eastern Russia, China, Mongolia, and the entirety of the Korean peninsula.

    The average Siberian tiger today weights between 397 lbs and 675 lbs for males, with females weighing anywhere from 220 lbs to 368 lbs. The last Korean tiger was spotted on the peninsula near Mount Daeduk in 1922 and was believed to have been killed by a hunter.

    For the reverse side of the 2018 South Korean Tiger Gold Medal, the Korean peninsula is united in an artistic design that brings together the letters of the Korean alphabet to create the outline of the peninsula.

    If you have any questions about these gold medals, please contact JM Bullion. Our customer service team is available at 800-276-6508, online using our live chat, and via our email address.

    Will I need to sign for my package?+

    Orders under $1000 will not require a signature unless that option is selected and paid for at checkout. Orders over $1000 will always require a signature for delivery.

    What happens if my order is lost or damaged in transit?+

    In the unlikely event your order is lost in transit, please contact us immediately so we can begin the claims process. If your items are not recovered, you will be entitled to a full reimbursement of the losses in accordance with the specific shippers insurance policy. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, we must be contacted within the first two (2) days of delivery concerning any damaged packages.

    Do you ship internationally?+

    We only ship to U.S. addresses (including P.O. Boxes and APO addresses).

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history. If you pay via PayPal, your order must ship to a PayPal Verified address.

    How will I know when my order ships?+

    An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    How do I choose my shipping method?+

    You may choose how your order is shipped during the checkout process. In the last section of the checkout page, "4 Shipping Method," you will see the available shipping options for your order. The first option is the free shipping we are providing, if the order qualifies for free shipping. That will be selected by default. This free shipping is always USPS,so please look at the pre-selected option for verification of mail carrier. If you do not want your order shipped via that mail carrier or want to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    How Do I Ship My Buyback Order To You?+

    Please pack your precious metals in a sturdy box. Items should be wrapped in bubble wrap, taped, and packing peanuts or foam used to fill loose spaces. Print and include the packing slip provided inside the box. For safer shipping, we recommend double-boxing your package and shaking it to ensure there is no rattling or movement inside. Make sure to include your return address on your label/package.

    We strongly suggest sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (signature required) and purchase insurance to cover the full amount of your items. UPS, FedEx, and non-Registered USPS typically do not cover bullion, so we do not recommend these services. Once your order is shipped, please email the tracking number along with your Sales Order ID to buybacks@jmbullion.com.

    Please note that we are not responsible for your items until they are accepted at our vault. If boxes arrive damaged, we will reject them, and they will be sent back to you. This will help you file a claim if necessary.

    Once your package is delivered, please allow up to three (3) business days for us to verify the contents and issue your payment. Our headquarters is in Dallas, Texas and the package is in Las Vegas, Nevada, so it may not be the same day when we let you know that the package arrived.

    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    What does “No Will Call” mean?+

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you ship to PO Boxes?+

    Yes, we do! All orders shipping to a PO Box will ship via USPS.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+

    No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these places is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments.
