The remarkable 2019 ZI:SIN Scrofa proof silver medal from South Korea blends ancient mythology and legend with modern minting techniques to make a memorable addition to any silver collection!
The Scrofa proof silver medal is the third entry in the KOMSCO (Korean Mint)'s ZI:SIN "12 Guardians of Heaven" series. Scrofa is the guardian of the sacred Great Salt Lake that separates the mortal and divine realms. The gods of the sun, moon, and stars created the lake not just to separate the realms, but to provide a buffer against demon attacks on the gods. Scrofa can use her senses to detect demons from great distances. When they attack, Scrofa uses her powers to create clones of herself to repel them.
The 2019 ZI:SIN Scrofa "ECLIPSE" proof silver medal features a special lenticular background. An alert and armored Scrofa appears on the medal in a bright proof finish, standing at the edge of the Salt Lake, sword at the ready. When the medal is tilted side to side, her hooded doppelganger clone, also armed with a sword, appears and disappears.
The obverse of the silver medal showcases a large Gwi-myeon-wa, known as a Ghost-Face Tile. Early Koreans cast these tiles with visages of guardian spirits, and hung them on the ends of their roofs to ward off evil. This Gwi-myeon-wa portrays Do ggae bi, a famous guardian spirit. While it frightens away evil spirits with its grotesque appearance, Do ggae bi is friendly towards humans.
KOMSCO's special latent image security measure and the KOMSCO logo are found below the Gwi-myeon-wa. The inscription 2019 FINE SILVER 999 runs along the left side of the medal, with REPUBLIC OF KOREA across the top. 1 CLAY, which is a special non-denominational measure used by KOMSCO, appears to the right of the image.
The 2019 ZI:SIN Scrofa "Eclipse" proof silver medal comes with box and COA, and is limited to 1,000 medals.
