In Korean culture, the tiger is an extremely important figure. While literal tigers are no longer present in the region, they once roamed the Korean mountains and consequently found their way into many of the country’s classic tales, including the legendary myth of Dangun. Today, tigers are found everywhere in Korean culture. In fact, some say the shape of the Korean peninsula itself is shaped like a crouching tiger.
Each 2021 10 oz South Korean Tiger Silver Medal has been struck in .999 pure silver and applied with a stunning antique finish. This lends an old-fashioned aesthetic to the medal which many collectors find quite appealing. When you order this product, you will receive a high-quality silver specimen in protective capsules. If you know someone with a love for the Korean tiger, this could make for a great gift option.
The obverse of 2021 10 oz Antique Tiger Silver Medals depicts a tiger cub lying on the ground. Just behind the cub is a cluster of bamboo, and off in the distance, we see a Korean temple. Inscribed on one of the bamboo trees is the word Gangneung, which is a popular coastal city in South Korea. Additional inscriptions read Korean Tiger, 2021, 10 oz.
On the reverse field of 2021 10 oz Antique South Korean Tiger Medals is an image of the Korean peninsula against a textured background. The peninsula is designed with Hangul lettering, and on the left side, we see the Taegeuk. On the opposite side is a latent security device that changes as you adjust the angle. Along the rim are the inscriptions Republic of Korea, Fine Silver .999.
