South Korean Tiger medals launched in 2016 with only gold bullion versions available in the lineup. 2018 saw the introduction of the first silver bullion version of the medal. That release included both bullion and proof versions of the South Korean Tiger Silver Medals. In 2019, the mint again issued a silver bullion medal and a silver proof medal. This second medal release is unique though.
All of the 2019 1 oz Proof Latent South Korean Tiger Silver Medals in this listing come to you with a protective capsule around the medal and a presentation box to house the medal and capsule. Inside of the lid, you will find a Certificate of Authenticity from KOMSCO to accompany your purchase.
Both of these Proof Latent South Korean Tiger Silver Medals are unique from the standard-issue proof in the use of enhanced latent security features on both sides. The background field on both faces of the medal has KOMSCO’s latent security lines, adding a layer of security to the product you purchase.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Latent South Korean Tiger Silver Medals is a depiction of the powerful tiger ripping its claws through the design field. The tiger’s appearance remains the same as the standard proof issue, but the tear marks and the rest of the background field boast the latent security lines.
The reverse face of the 2019 Proof Latent South Korean Tiger Silver Medal bears a depiction of the Korean peninsula. The peninsula is shaped in this design not by the political boundaries of the region or the geographic features, but rather by the letters of the Hangul, the Korean alphabet. You will also notice the latent KOMSCO security feature used on all products to the right of the design field and the Taeguk, the national emblem of South Korea, to the left of the field.
