The evolution of the imagery used on the reverse side of South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals tells the story of Chiwoo’s rise to power. The initial release in 2016 depicted Chiwoo standing with his shield and weapon ready to lead his warriors into battle. The 2017 issue featured Chiwoo mounted on his horse as he prepared to ride into battle against the enemy. The latest 2018 Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals depict his charge toward the enemy line.
On the reverse face of the 2018 1 oz Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang is a vision of the fearless warrior and God of War leading his troops into battle. Riding on his warhorse, Chiwoo rides into battle charging the enemy lines with a fearsome look on his face and his sword leveled in preparation to strike an enemy.
The obverse side of 2018 Proof Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals features the depiction of Do ggae bi. He is a supernatural creature believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits and is featured on the shield which Chiwoo Cheonwang carries into battle. The obverse also includes the latent security image used by KOMSCO, a small circle which includes within it the purity of the medal “999.”
KOMSCO is the official sovereign mint of the Republic of Korea, otherwise known as South Korea. KOMSCO was founded in 1951 to provide the fledgling South Korean government with independent currency production.
