After the Tiger bullion series was launched by KOMSCO in 2016 it was only available in the sizes 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz and 1 oz Gold. Now in 2018 the 1 oz & 10 oz Silver Tiger are making their debut with a limited mintage of 30,000 in the 1 oz and 2,000 in the 10 oz which is significantly lower than the highly sought after Chiwoo Cheonwang series.
The tiger has been known as the animal that represents South Korea. There was no better fit than the tiger as the design for the bullion series produced by the official mint of the country. With the increasing demand for low mintage premium Silver bullion, KOMSCO made the decision to extend its range of Tiger bullion medals by the 1 oz & 10 oz Silver in 2018.
