The Chiwoo Cheonwang collection of gold and silver bullion medals debuted in 2016, and since that issue year, the mint has used a new design of Chiwoo on the reverse with each year of release. This is the closest to the figure of Chiwoo the collection has come with the features of his face visible as he rides into battle.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz South Korean Gold Chiwoo Cheonwang is the figure of Chiwoo on horseback. The man known as a God of War has an intense look on his face as he wields a massive sword while riding his horse into battle. He wears a full suit of armor and a helmet with two horns.
Chiwoo Cheonwang the man was a tribal leader of the Nine Li tribe in ancient China and is known as one of the three founding fathers of China. He is well-known for fighting against the future Yellow Emperor and showcasing his own prowess on the field of battle. It is in the fog of war that Chiwoo Cheonwang the legend emerges. He is rumored in some texts to have had the power to control the weather, summon fog, and even possess 4 eyes and 6 arms.
The obverse of all 2018 1 oz South Korean Gold Chiwoo Cheonwang medals features the shield of Chiwoo which bears the image of Do ggae bi, a mythical creature said to ward off evil spirits. The latent security image is found on this side below the shield, as are engravings of the mint of issue, nation of issue, year of issue, metal content, purity, and value of the coins.
