The legendary warrior Chiwoo is back again for 2018 with a special proof version from KOMSCO, the official mint of South Korea.
Struck from .999 fine silver, this silver piece contains a total of 1 troy ounce of actual silver weight (ASW).
The obverse shows the face of the Do-ggae-bi, a magical being that wards off evil spirits in Korean mythology. The purity "999" appears in a small circle below. The issuing country "REPUBLIC OF KOREA" is inscribed at the top rim, while the medallion's specifications are also inscribed on the outer rim.
Chiwoo Cheonwang is shown charging toward the viewer on horseback on the reverse side. The image is given a gorgeous proof finish, meaning that mirrored fields stand out against frosted relief devices.
Although South Korea is a recent entrant into the silver bullion market, its Chiwoo series has already grabbed the attention of collectors and investors in Europe and North America. Make the 2018 South Korea 1 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver Proof part of your collection today!
