In 2016, the Korean Minting and Security Printing Corporation (KOMSCO) unveiled a new series of gold and silver medallions celebrating the time-honored stories of Chiwoo Cheonwang – a legendary warrior whose numerous battlefield victories earned him the mythological title, “God of War” among ancient Chinese and Korean people. Each release in the series depicts Chiwoo in a different pose as he prepares for war and leads his troops into battle.
2019 marks the 4th release in this popular, limited-mintage series. Chiwoo stands tall on the battlefield, ready to fight the enemy once more. With its .999 pure silver content, limited mintage, and striking design, this latest issue, like all previous releases, is sure to be a hit with investors and collectors alike. Add the 2019 silver Chiwoo Cheonwang to your order today!
The obverse of all medallions in the Chiwoo series share a common design. Featured here is the image of the Do ggae bi on a Chiwoo Cheonwang shield, a supernatural creature believed to protect against evil spirits. According to tradition, Korean people hang the image of Do ggae bi off roof tiles to prevent evil spirits from entering their homes. Engravings on the obverse also include “REPUBLIC OF KOREA”, “1 CLAY”, and “2019 FINE SILVER 999.” This side also features KOMSCO’s latent security engraving of “999” and “KOMSCO” in the center of the design field.
The reverse features Chiwoo in full battle regalia standing tall on a rocky plateau as he gazes upon on the once-active battlefield below. He holds his shield featuring Do ggae bi in one hand and his long sword in the other. “Chiwoo Cheonwang” is also inscribed.

" These "Medallions" are well struck and look great in person! The back-story is really interesting and the very limited mintage of each piece keeps the interest high. When looking at the secondary market, these seem to come with a steep up-lift from original retail here at Provident. I have all of them and look forward to building my collection."
