The Gold South Korean Tiger Medals from KOMSCO represent one of the first major bullion collections from the South Korean Mint to gain widespread international attention among investors and collectors. Starting in 2016, KOMSCO began issuing designs in the Chiwoo Cheonwang and South Korean Tiger Series. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase random 1/2 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals online from Provident Metals.
KOMSCO has an ever-growing portfolio of silver and gold bullion products that are popular with North American and global investors. The South Korean Tiger Series is one of the leading options for buyers. The gold medals in this series come with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold options each year and a new image of the tiger on the obverse for each of the available date marks.
The obverse side of these 1/2 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals includes the image of a Korean tiger. The tigers on this face of the gold medals are captured in different reliefs with each date mark. For example, the 2018 design captured a tiger stalking its prey silently as it walks along the right side of the design field opposite of some bamboo stalks on the left side of the design field. In 2019, the design was changed to feature a tiger on the attack. In that design, a tigers claws rip through the design field as its snarling face is featured in the background.
On the reverse face of all 1/2 oz Gold South Korean Tiger Medals is a depiction of the Korean peninsula. Rather than a geographic design or a map of the political boundaries of the peninsula, here you see the letters of the Hangul, the Korean alphabet, used to shape the artistic image of the Korean peninsula. You will also notice a latent security image from KOMSCO on this face of the gold medals and the South Korean national emblem.
Though this series is named for the Korean tiger, no species of that name ever actually existed. The Korean tiger is, in reality, the colloquial name in the Koreas for the Siberian tiger that once existed here in the wild. The last Siberian tiger living in the wild on the Korean peninsula was killed by hunters in the 1920s.
