KOREAN TIGER – 2018 1oz Pure Silver Medal in Capsule – South Korea KOMSCO
KOREAN TIGER – 2018 1 oz Pure Silver Medal in Capsule – South Korea KOMSCO
A new release by KOMSCO the Korean Tiger, order at The Coin Shoppe
The tiger has been strongly associated with Korean people and Korean culture. It appears in not only the Korean foundation mythology but also in folklore, as well as a favorite subject of Korean art such as painting and sculpture. The mascot of the 1988 Summer Olympics held in Seoul, South Korea is Hodori, a stylized tiger to represent Korean people.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz South Korean Silver Tiger Coin is the image of the large, predatory cat as it prowls through the foliage. The tiger depicted is a Siberian tiger, with a historic range that once stretched through eastern Russia, eastern and southeastern China, Mongolia, and down into modern-day South Korea in the Korean peninsula. Engravings on this face include the year of issue, weight, and name of the series “Korean Tiger.”
For the reverse of the South Korean Silver Tiger Coin, KOMSCO introduces a beautiful design field that leaves international boundaries aside. The outline of the Korean peninsula is depicted in the center, with only symbols from the Korean language used in the depiction of the region. Design elements around the outside rim mimic the foliage on the obverse, with engravings of the nation of issue, metal content, and purity.
Individual coin will come in capsules directly from the mint, and orders of 20 will come in a mint tube.
