2022 South Korea Zi Sin Tigris 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal
The 2022 South Korea Zi Sin Tigris 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal comes in a protective Coin capsule.
The Zi:Sin series is back for its 6th release, this time featuring the Guardian known as Tigris. Zi:Sin are twelve Guardians from Korean mythology. Inspired by the lunar calendar, they are tasked with protecting against evil forces from twelve different directions. This issue features Tigris wielding a halberd while on the prowl.
The Zi:Sin series from KOMSCO offers an intriguing twist on well-known lunar calendar coins. Rather than offer twelve animals representing each month, the series turns to Korean lore and presents the 12 Guardians. According to myth, there are evil forces from twelve directions on the lunar calendar wheel. The Guardians are divinely ordained protectors against these dangerous forces lurking around us. There are 12 Guardians in total, each one representing an animal on the lunar calendar.
The sixth release in the series is this 2022-dated medal depicting the warrior Tigris. Minted in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, it shows the battle-hardened guardian dressed in armor and regalia reflective of the tiger. The sacred weapon he holds in his left hand is a halberd, a two-handed medieval pole weapon that consists of an axe blade topped with a spike and a hook on the back that’s mounted on a long shaft. This weapon was particularly useful in snagging mounted opponents and yanking them to the ground. A forest of bamboo can be seen in the background while a bare-chested, muscle-rippling Tigris surveys what lies ahead of him from the top of a rocky escarpment.
The obverse: of the 2021 1 oz Zi:Sin Taurus Silver Medal features the Doggaebi, a mythical creature in Korean lore that fends off dark spirits. The design is based on a famous tile found in the ancient Korean kingdom of Silla. On the border of the coin are the weight, purity, date, and country. KOMSCO is spelled out at the bottom of the medal. Also, rather than 1 Troy oz, the medal says 1 Clay. This is simply a measurement from the mint that is the equivalent of a Troy oz.
The reverse: features the guardian Tigris, battle-hardened guardian dressed in armor and regalia reflective of the tiger. The sacred weapon he holds in his left hand is a halberd, a two-handed medieval pole weapon that consists of an axe blade topped with a spike and a hook on the back that’s mounted on a long shaft.
