The second entry in South Korea's "The Twelve Guardians" (ZI:SIN) series is the impressive 2018 Canis 1 oz Silver Bullion piece.
Each of these medallions contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver and is struck from .999 fine silver. They are given a symbolic face value of "1 Clay," a new concept introduced by the South Korean Mint (KOMSCO).
The reverse of the piece shows a detailed action shot of Canis, one of the 12 Guardians. His name is a reference to wolves, and his attire matches this theme. The background of the design gives a feeling of texture and depth behind the inscription "ZI:SIN CANIS" along the bottom-left rim.
The Do-ggae-bi from traditional Korean mythology graces the obverse of the medallion in exquisite detail. "KOMSCO" and the purity "999" are found at the bottom rim. The rest of the rim inscriptions read "2018 FINE SILVER 999," the issuing country "REPUBLIC OF KOREA," and the denomination "1 CLAY."
The 2018 South Korea ZI:SIN Canis 1 oz Silver Bullion from KOMSCO follows the first issue in the ZI:SIN series, which featured Gallus. This series is planned to cover all 12 different Guardians, so be sure to add this beauty to your collection from Gainesville Coins.
