The Zi:Sin Series is a South Korean version of the various Chinese lunar calendar collections available to modern investors and collectors. Each year comes with one design available that depicts a different member of the 12 Guardians, a group of warriors fighting for God’s armies to protect the mortal world.
Scrofa represents the Year of the Pig release as the third character in the collection, and for the first time KOMSCO has offered two distinct options for one of the 12 Guardians. Scrofa Gold Medals are available with a standard design, as well as a secondary design option that directly depicts one of her unique abilities in action.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz South Korean Scrofa Ghost Gold Medal is a depiction of her figure standing on the shores of the Salt Lake. It is here that the mortal world and the immortal world intersect, and her duty is to guard the opening to ensure that the evil forces of the world don’t infiltrate. Her senses include the ability to sense danger coming over far distances.
What makes the Scrofa Ghost Gold Medal unique is its depiction of her greatest power in a separate issue. Here, the same design from the standard issue appears but with the addition of a “ghost” figure, which reflects her ability to duplicate herself in battle to confuse enemies.
The reverse of 2019 South Korean Scrofa Ghost Gold Medals includes the image of Do ggae bi. This grotesque figure was used on the battle shield of Chiwoo Cheonwang to instill fear in his enemies on the field of battle.
All of these 2019 1 oz South Korean Scrofa Ghost Gold Medals are available to you here in near-perfect condition. Coins with a Mint State 69 certification have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws which are acceptable at this certification level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines. The included ER label stands for Early Release and indicates the coins were received by the NGC for certification within the first 30 days following their release from KOMSCO.
