On the reverse of 2019 Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals is the design of Chiwoo standing on a rocky plateau. In this fourth design of the collection, we find Chiwoo in the aftermath of a battle. He stands reflecting on the hard-won victory. For the first time, we see him without his helmet on. As he ponders the cost of victory, he shield rests at his side while his sword is stuck into the ground and clutched by his left hand.
The obverse of 2019 1 oz Proof South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals includes the design element of Do ggae bi’s face. A mythical creature similar to the hobgoblin of Western cultures, Do ggae bi’s grotesque appearance is said to possess the power to ward off evil. At one point in history, Korean people would hang his effigy from their roofing tiles to protect their homes from evil.
