When KOMSCO introduced the South Korean Tiger medal series in 2016, the series focused its designs on the ferocity of the worlds largest predatory cat. The designs changed each year, often featuring the powerful cat as it stalked its prey or prepared to strike without notice. For the 2020 fifth-anniversary release, KOMSCO offers a softer view of the tiger with images of major South Korean tourist sites. Right now, you can buy 1/2 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Tigers online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of a 1/2 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Tiger from Provident Metals, you will receive a gold medal that is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from KOMSCO. The gold medals come with individual protective plastic capsules and rolls of 20 gold medals.
A tiger cub is shown in the obverse design of the 1/2 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Tiger. The tiger cub is shown as it rests across the famous gate of the Gyeongbokgung Palace near Seoul. The palace was the seat of power for the Joseon Dynasty that ruled the Korean peninsula from 1392 to 1897. Nearby, the Namsan Tower is featured, a modern structure that was built in 1971 on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul and is situated at the second-highest point in the city. Inscriptions on this face of the gold medal include 1/2 oz, Korean Tiger 2020, Seoul, and a tiger paw print.
The Korean peninsula is featured on the reverse side of 1/2 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Tigers. The design of the peninsula is not a geographic or geopolitical rendition of the peninsula, but rather, one that forms the shape of the peninsula using the letters of the Hangul. The Hangul is the Korean alphabet. The inscriptions on this side of the medal read Republic of Korea and Fine Gold 999. The background behind the design elements on this side is that of tiger stripes, which are most visible around the rim of the design element.
The South Korean Tigers debuted in gold in 2016, with expansion coming in 2018 with the introduction of a silver medal. The designs have changed on the obverse field each year. The 2020 design is a departure from the other designs, offering a renewed glance at the tiger as a young cub. Further symbolizing renewal and rebirth, the Namsan Tower has blooming azaleas and forsythias.
