2023 South Korea Zi Sin Lepus 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal
The 2023 South Korea Zi Sin Lepus 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal comes in a protective Coin capsule.
The 12 guardians are known to protect 12 different directions during war. Each guardian represents the animals in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The series started in 2017 with Gallus, representing the Year of the Rooster who guards the West. Although the guardians are seen in their human form, their armor often depicts the animal that they represent.
The seventh release in the series is this 2023-dated medal depicting the warrior Lepus. 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: field of all 2023 South Korean Zi:Sin Lepus Silver Medals features a Doggaebi Shield. This image has been featured on the obverse of every Medal in this series, however, the design became more ferocious starting in 2020. This Doggaebi is a mythical creature, people would hang the effigy of the Doggaebi from the edge of their roof tiles to ward off evil spirits. Identifying marks of the coin are also featured around the shield.
The reverse: of 2023 1 oz Zi:Sin Lepus Silver Medals features one of the 12 guardians, Lepus. The guardian is shown pointing at something in the distance as the guardian is donning an elegant wardrobe with a headpiece. The moon and some branches can be seen in the background. Lepus represents the Year of the Hare.
