The obverse of 2022 Proof South Korean Zi:Sin Tigris Silver Medals features the Doggaebi shield. This shield traditionally belonged to Chiwoo, the God of War. The Doggaebi is a mischievous creature of Korean mythology who is seen as the equivalent of the Western hobgoblin.
On the reverse of 2022 1 oz Proof South Korean Zi:Sin Silver Medals the Guardian Tigris is featured. In this design, Tigris is dressed in a cloak and armor as he wields a mighty halberd. As he navigates rocky terrain, we see a full moon and a bamboo forest in the background. Along the edge there is an inscription reading Zi:Sin Tigris.
Each release in the Zi:Sin Series corresponds to the Chinese lunar cycle. While that cycle features 12 different rotating animals, this collection features the 12 Guardians of Korean lore. These ancient heroes were known to protect against the encroaching forces of evil from 12 different directions. In this release, Tigris is featured, which corresponds with the 2022 Year of the Tiger. And if you examine Tigris closely, you will see he has tattoos on his arms that resemble the stripes of a tiger.
