South Korean mint, Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation, introduced a new series of coins in 2016 called the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series. This series features different designs of the Korean God of War Chiwoo Cheonwang each year. Right now, you can purchase the 1/2 oz Gold 2018 South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medal from Provident Metals in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.
Each 1/2 oz Gold 2018 South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medal in this listing comes in BU condition. They will also ship in a protective plastic flip to keep the coins in tip-top shape.
The obverse side of all 1/2 oz Gold 2018 South Korean Chiwoo Cheonwang Medals showcase the image of Do ggae bi, the hobgoblin-like creature that uses his appearance to scare off evil spirits. The Korean people have used his likeness to protect their homes from the presence of evil. Chiwoo Cheonwang used Do ggae bis image on his shield to intimidate his enemies in battle.
On the reverse of these coins, you will see the latest designed image of Chiwoo in this series. The 2018 design shows Chiwoo on his horse riding into battle with a fearless expression on his face. He appears ready to cut down his enemies with his sword held up in striking position.
Folklore suggests that Chiwoo Cheonwang, the Korean God of War, is based on a real man. However, he gained legendary status due to the mythical powers that people associated with him. It is said that one of his powers was the ability to control the weather during battles. This allowed him to create a dense fog to make it more difficult for his enemies to be successful in a fight.
