In 2020, KOMSCO introduced a new silver and gold bullion medal program honoring one of the most sacred symbols in Korean culture. The phoenix is a mythical bird known to cultures around the world, but in several cultures from the Asian continent, the phoenix is more deeply rooted than it is in the Western world. To this day, the phoenix remains a vibrant piece of Korean culture. Now, 2021 1 oz South Korean Gold Phoenix Medals are available to you for purchase online at JM Bullion.

The 2020 release of the first South Korean Gold Phoenix Medal was part of a new series from KOMSCO. This collection offers a static obverse and reverse design with a new security element that KOMSCO has been increasingly offering on its bullion medal programs.
In the designs of the South Korean Phoenix Series, KOMSCO celebrates the mythical bird said to have the power of regeneration. In particular, the designs celebrate both an artistic rendition of the bird and symbolism inspired by the official seal and standard of the President of the Republic of Korea.
For the obverse field of 2021 1 oz South Korean Gold Phoenix Medals, KOMSCO offers a depiction of the elegant phoenix in flight. The bird is shown with long, swept wings that engulf the outer edges of the design field. The bird’s long, ornate tail sweeps down along the bottom of the design field, and in the lower left, you will find a security element on the medal. As you adjust your viewing angle, this alternates between the words Bong and Hwang, reflecting Korean-language words for the phoenix.
In the reverse design of 2021 South Korean Gold Phoenix Medals, the mint features a design inspired by the presidential seal. Here, there are birds set on either side of the Taeguk, the national emblem of the Republic of Korea.
These 2021 1 oz South Korean Gold Phoenix Medals are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Specimens in this series will ship individually packaged in protective acrylic capsules.
