2020 is the Year of the Rat on the Lunar Calendar. For the Zi:Sin Series at KOMSCO, 2020 is the year that features the Rattus design. Fourth in the popular investment-grade bullion series, Rattus is Queen of the underworld and watches for threats and great wars on the horizon, waiting to alert Chiwoo Cheonwang when she senses trouble. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 1 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Zi:Sin Rattus Medals online from Provident Metals.
KOMSCO introduced the Zi:Sin Series in 2017 with the Year of the Rooster featuring Gallus as the first guardian from the 12 Guardians. The collection has moved on in tandem with the animals of the Chinese Lunar Calendar to feature Canis in the Year of the Dog (2018) and Scrofa in the Year of the Pig (2019).
The obverse of the 1 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Zi:Sin Rattus Medals features a new image of Do ggae bi for the first time in the history of KOMSCO. In a new smiling depiction of Do ggae bi, the creatures eyebrows, flared nostrils, and deadly teeth are all more prominent in the design element. Other factors of the design remain the same, with Do ggae bi still on the battle shield of Chiwoo Cheonwang. The KOMSCO latent security image is featured below the shield with inscriptions around the outer rocker of the design field reading 2020 Fine Gold 999, Republic of Korea, 1 Clary, and KOMSCO.
On the reverse field of 1 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Zi:Sin Rattus Medals is the guardian of the underworld. Rattus is depicted wearing a celestial robe as her right hand is held out in front of her figure, seemingly holding up the moon. Issued in the Year of the Rat, Rattus has stylized rats on the shoulder armor of her wardrobe and her hair is braided up to reflect rat ears above her head. Inscriptions on this face of the medal include only Zi:Sin Rattus.
KOMSCO went deep into the history of Ancient Korea to use the 12 Guardians in place of traditional animal figures on the Zi:Sin Series. This makes the collection a strong competitor of other lunar-themed collections that all use animal designs.
These 1 oz Gold 2020 South Korean Zi:Sin Rattus Medals are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each of the gold medals arrives inside of individual protective plastic capsules.
