Taekwondo is one of the most popular forms of martial arts practiced around the world. Developed in the 1940s, it has primarily served the purpose as a competitive sport rather than an ancient form of self-defense against one’s enemies. This martial art is the focus of a 1 oz silver medal series from KOMSCO that is in just its second release. Right now, 2020 1 oz South Korean Silver Taekwondo Medals are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

The 2020 design representing taekwondo is the second issue in the series and offers a dramatic change from the previous issue. The first release of the taekwondo design featured a high, sweeping kick. Taekwondo as a martial art is defined by the use of head-height kicks, spinning kicks, sweeping moves, and fast techniques.
Obverse design elements of the 2020 1 oz South Korean Silver Taekwondo Medals include the swirling image of the Taegeuk. The official emblem of the Republic of Korea, the Taeguek appears on the South Korean flag and features, at its core, a yin-yang symbol. In this design element, you will find the latent security image of KOMSCO in the lower-half of the yin-yang symbol.
Reverse fields on the 2020 South Korean Silver Taekwondo Medals include the image of a combatant using his fist to deliver a knock-out blow to his opponent. This is a dramatic design that uses relative size and positioning in the design to make it seem as though that fist is actually getting closer to your face as you view the product.
KOMSCO stands for Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation. The government-owned corporation was founded in South Korea at the start of the Korean War and was designed to ensure the continuity of the financial system for South Korea.
