The Zi:Sin series from KOMSCO offers an intriguing twist on well-known lunar calendar coins. Rather than offer twelve animals representing each month, the series turns to Korean lore and presents the 12 Guardians. According to myth, there are evil forces from twelve directions on the lunar calendar wheel. The Guardians are divinely ordained protectors against these dangerous forces lurking around us. There are 12 Guardians in total, each one representing an animal on the lunar calendar.
Each Guardian is assigned with unique powers to help in the fight of good versus evil. While Taurus is known to defend peace, he is also the God of War. As such, he is a large, striking presence. He is seen forging a sword, signaling both skill and preparedness. There is little doubt encroaching evil forces will cower in fright in the presence of such an imposing figure.
2021 South Korean Taurus Silver Medals arrive to you in brilliant uncirculated condition. All medals come in individual plastic flips.
The obverse of the 2021 1 oz Zi:Sin Taurus Silver Medal features the Doggaebi, a mythical creature in Korean lore that fends off dark spirits. The design is based on a famous tile found in the ancient Korean kingdom of Silla. On the border of the coin are the weight, purity, date, and country. KOMSCO is spelled out at the bottom of the medal. Also, rather than 1 Troy oz, the medal says 1 Clay. This is simply a measurement from the mint that is the equivalent of a Troy oz.
The reverse features the guardian Taurus front and center. Taurus has flowing hair and is seen forging a sword. This suggests both his warrior ethos and that he is primed for battle. He appears poised and ready to ward off any evil spirits that dare approach. On the border of the medal are the words Zi:Sin Taurus.
