The tiger is one of the most symbolic animals in the culture of the Korean people. Tigers have served varying purposes in art, literature, and popular culture, even serving as the official mascot when South Korea hosted the Olympic Games. The South Korean Silver Tiger Medal collection launched in 2018 following the 2016 introduction of the gold bullion version. Now, 2019 1 oz South Korean Silver Tiger Medals are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

KOMSCO introduced two major bullion programs in 2016. The most prominent so far has been the Chiwoo Cheonwang collection, but the Korean Tiger release has proven equally popular and does so with lower mintage figures. The series debuted in gold bullion, and in 2018 it gained two different silver options.
The 2018 release included the first-ever 1 oz silver Korean Tiger bullion medals and later featured a 10 oz silver bullion medal. The Silver Korean Tiger Medals had different designs for the 1 oz and 10 oz options, and a new design features again on the obverse of the 2019 Silver Korean Tiger Medals.
On the obverse of the 2019 1 oz South Korean Silver Tiger Medal is the image of the massive predatory cat’s claw slicing through the visual field. As the large claws of the cat cut through the design field, you can see the snarling look on the face of the large beast. Korean tigers are though to have last existed on the peninsula in 1922. The Korean tiger is a local reference to the Siberian tiger, the largest member of the species alive today by weight.
The reverse face of 2019 1 oz Silver Tiger Medals includes a common image used throughout this stunning collection. Here, you’ll find the Korean peninsula depicted without political borders or topographical features. This artistic rendition of the peninsula uses the letters of the Korean alphabet to fill in the form and shape.
These 2019 1 oz South Korean Silver Tiger Medals are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Individual medals are available inside of protective flips, with multiples available in tubes of 25 medals or monster boxes of 250 medals.
KOMSCO is the official minting operation of the Republic of Korea. Created in the midst of the Korean War in 1951, it was founded to provide South Korea with independent coin production and paper currency printing.
