The 2020 South Korean Chiwoo silver coin marks the fifth release of the highly sought after Chiwoo silver bullion series. The limited mintages and annual changing designs make the Chiwoo series desired in many collections or investments.
KOMSCO, the official mint of South Korea, chose this historical figure to celebrate the country’s first ever silver bullion series. Chiwoo Cheonwang is revered in Chinese and Korean cultures for both his historical feats and the folklore tales attributed to him.
The reverse features incredibly detailed mountain scene, featuring Chiwoo Cheonwang in full battle armour protecting his shoulders and chest, wielding his sword and shield in either hand. Chiwoo Cheonwang’s attention focused solely on a sealed gate opposite him.
The obverse depicts Do ggae bi in extravagant detail, a mythical figure from Korean lore that was believed to have the power to protect from evil spirits.
Inscriptions include “REPUBLIC OF KOREA” encircling the top rim, and “2020 FINE SILVER 999” at the left rim, with “1 CLAY” at the right. Below the image is a unique, latent image engraving, that very faintly displays, “999” in a small circle. “KOMSCO” is inscribed at the bottom rim.
The “1 Clay” is a new measurement developed by KOMSCO. It references 1 unit of 1 troy oz of the metal. The word clay is considered to be of the soil, out of which the metal was derived.
The 2020 South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang 1oz silver bullion round come in tubes of 25 with 10 tubes to a monster box (250oz total). There is a world wide mintage of 33,000 silver bullion coins.
