The South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Series chronicles the man whose real life became the thing of legends. An actual tribal leader in ancient China and historical figure to those early inhabitants of the Korean peninsula, Chiwoo has gained mythical status in the millennia following his death for his actions on the battlefield.
In the Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang Series, KOMSCO has changed the reverse imagery of Chiwoo with each new year’s release. However, these are not changes for the sake of providing a different design. Instead, KOMSCO is chronicling with each of the designs one of Chiwoo’s great battlefield achievements.
All 2018 1 oz South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang medals listed here are in BU condition. Products in BU condition show no indications of wear and tear from handling. However, minor production flaws are possible such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.
On the reverse of the new 2018 1 oz South Korean Silver Chiwoo Cheonwang you’ll find the image of Chiwoo as he rushes the enemy position in battle wielding a massive sword. This is the closest we’ve come in the series to seeing him face to face, and for the first time his features are not obscured by his battle mask.
The obverse of all Silver Chiwoo Cheonwangs features the common design element used across silver and gold releases in this collection dating to 2016. This is the image of Do ggae bi, a supernatural creature whose grotesque appearance belies his true intentions. Ancient people would hang the effigy of Do ggae bi from the edge roof tiles of their homes to ward off other evil spirits.
