2021 South Korea Chiwoo Cheonwang 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal
The 2021 South Korea Chiwoo Cheonwang 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal comes in a protective Coin capsule.
The 2021 release features an all-new, one-year-only design struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% silver. It depicts Chiwoo Cheonwang, South Korea’s legendary God of War madly thumping a traditional battle drum amid a host of soldiers on horseback riding past in the background. Cheonwang’s cape has been caught by the wind and majestically float above him to form a backdrop for the name of the series, “CHIWOO CHEONWANG” to be engraved along the rim of the coin. You’ll also want to look closely at the war drum where you’ll see an image of Dokkaebi, a supernatural goblin. That same design appears on Cheonwang’s left shoulder and is repeated on the medal’s obverse.
Chiwoo Cheonwang upon whose life these designs are based on, is the symbol of victory in Korean history and folklore. In battle, he wore a demonic mask that obscured his face and terrified his enemies. Combined with his ability to cast magic spells and control the weather, Chiwoo Cheonwang fought a series of epic battles against China’s Yellow Emperor more than 4,500 years ago. Today his mask serves as the mascot for South Korea’s national soccer team, the Red Devils.
- Obverse: 2021 continues with the 2020 version of the gwi-myeon-wa, the shield of Chiwoo Cheonwang. The design features stronger facial features as well as two large bull horns. This grinning gi-wa design is owned by the Gyeongju National Museum of the Republic of Korea. Design also incorporates a lenticular security feature.
- Reverse: Depicts the great Chiwoo Cheonwang in full battle dress beating on a traditional war drum with such fierceness that lightning bolts shoot out amid his soldiers on horseback.
