South Korean medals sprung onto the market and immediately became a favorite for many precious metals collectors and investors. KOMSCOs Zi:Sin Series is no different. This 12-medal series began in 2017 with the Gallus medal, which features one of the Twelve Guardians found in Korean lore. You can purchase the 2017 South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus 1 oz Silver Medal from Provident Metals in perfect MS70 condition.
The Chiwoo Cheonwang series launched KOMSCO onto the international stage in 2016. The designs in that series show Cheonwang in various battle scenes. On one side of each of those medals is the image of Cheonwangs shield, which bears the image of Do ggae bi. The same image is also featured on the reverse side of the medals in this series.
The Zi:Sin Series features a total of 12 different designs. Each of these designs was created to represent a different member of the Twelve Guardians of Korean lore. These guardians lead gods armies into battle against evil. They also have mythical powers that help them defeat their enemies.
