Buy 2019 South Korea 1 oz Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver Proof (KOMSCO)

This striking 2019 Chiwoo Cheonwang proof silver medal from South Korea continues the saga of the legendary "King of Heaven". It is made from one troy ounce of .999 fine silver by KOMSCO, the Korean Mint. It comes in a presentation box with Certificate of Authenticity, and is limited to a 1,500 mintage.

The Chiwoo Cheonwang silver medal series began in 2016. The first medal featured the mythical general in full armor, armed with spear and shield. The 2017 Chiwoo silver medal has him mounted on a rearing horse, armed with the same spear. The 2018 medal shows Chiwoo Cheonwang in combat astride his horse, thrusting a sword towards the viewer.

The 2019 Chiwoo Cheonwang proof silver medal reveals the victorious "god of war" after the battle. Still dressed in his armor, he stands atop a bare, wind-swept mountain. Surveying the now-quiet battlefield below, he is already thinking of battles to come. This is the first Chiwoo silver medal to reveal the general's face. His war helm has obscured his visage in previous designs.

The obverse of the 2019 Chiwoo Cheonwang silver medal displays a Gwi-myeon-wa (Ghost-faced tile). Early Koreans cast these tiles with the images of guardian spirits. They placed these tiles at either end of their roofs to protect the home and its occupants from evil.

This Gwi-myeon-wa matches Chiwoo Cheonwang's shield, depicting a Do ggae bi guardian spirit. Despite its fearsome appearance, meant to ward off evil spirits, the Do ggae bi was good-natured towards humans. It is surrounded, from left to right, with the inscriptions "2019 Fine Silver 999","Republic of Korea", and "1 Clay". The circular latent security mark below the Gwi-myeon-wa reads either "999" or "Ag" when the medal is tilted. The logo of KOMSCO lies underneath the security mark.
