Zi:Sin refers to the 12 Guardians of Korean cultural lore. These individuals are the greatest warriors in the army of God and have the responsibility of watching the 12 directions of the world for the rise of danger. When these individuals spot danger, they summon and fight with the armies of God to defeat the forces of evil.
All of the 2019 1/2 oz South Korean Zi:Sin Scrofa Silver Medals in this product listing are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with individual plastic capsules. This design is the third in the Zi:Sin Series and depicts the guardian known as Scrofa, the guardian of the Salt Lake.
The obverse face of all 2019 South Korean Zi:Sin Scrofa Silver Medals feature the image of Do ggae bi. In this design, the grotesque figures face is depicted on the surface of the battle shield that Chiwoo Cheonwang carries into battle. The face is said to be so grotesque that it possesses the power to ward off evil spirits. Koreans believed this to such an extent that in the past they would hang his effigy on their homes to keep the residence free of evil influences.
On the reverse side of 2019 1/2 oz South Korean Zi:Sin Scrofa Silver Medals is a depiction of Scrofa. She is the guardian responsible for guarding the Salt Lake, an important duty given the significance of the lake. The lake marks the point where the mortal world meets the immortal world, a spot evil is likely to arise.
Scrofa has many powers, like any of the 12 Guardians. Her most significant powers are the ability to sense danger coming over great distances and the ability to duplicate her figure in battle, confusing her enemies in the process.
