The gorgeous Tiger Medallion is back from the Korean Mint, and this time the beautiful design is available in silver. With a mintage of only 30,000 pieces, the 2018 South Korea Silver Tiger 1 oz Bullion Medallion not only bears a detailed and captivating design, but is also struck from .999 fine (99.9% pure) silver!
Each medallion contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver and is issued by the Korean Mint (also known as KOMSCO) without a monetary denomination.
The obverse features a realistic image of a tiger facing left. It is shown growling with its fangs exposed and its ears pinned back in a defensive posture. The details of its fur, whiskers, and facial expression are incredibly intricate. The rim bears the inscriptions "2018 KOREAN TIGER" and the weight "1 oz" at the bottom.
On the reverse design, the map of Korea is assembled from letters of the Korean alphabet, some of which are inverted at different angles. The largest letters spell out the country's official name in Korean for a highly artistic effect. The national symbol that appears on South Korea's flag is placed to the left. An innovative anti-counterfeiting latent image appears in a circle to the right.
Along the outer rim, a pattern of tiger stripes separates the two inscriptions "REPUBLIC OF KOREA" at the top and "FINE SILVER 999.9" at the bottom. The edge design is reeded.
These proof-quality medallions are a fitting tribute to South Korea, which ranks among the "Four Tigers of Asia" along with China, Japan, and Taiwan. Add this stunning .999 silver medallion to your portfolio today with the 2018 South Korea 1 oz Silver Tiger Bullion Medallion!
