Each year, the Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation (KOMSCO) unveils a new design in the Zi:Sin coin series that corresponds with the 12-year cycle of the lunar calendar. Zi:Sin stands for the Twelve Guardians: God’s commanders who are assigned to protect the human race from all twelve directions around the globe. The commanders roam the earth, protecting mankind from threats like demons and plagues by wielding their extraordinary powers over nature. While the commanders are in human form, each one wears a helmet and carries a unique weapon representing a mythical creature.
As 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, this year’s release features the image of Gallus, the messenger of upcoming events in god’s army. Gallus bravely stands at the army’s front lines, head pointed to the west as he keeps a watchful eye out for enemies.
The obverse of the 12 medals in the Zi:Sin series share a common design. Featured here is the image of the Do ggae bi, a supernatural creature believed to protect against evil spirits. According to tradition, Korean people hang the image of Do ggae bi off roof tiles to prevent evil spirits from entering their homes. Engravings on the obverse also include “REPUBLIC OF KOREA” and “2018 FINE GOLD 999.” This side also features KOMSCO’s latent security engraving of “999” and “KOMSCO” in the center of the design field.
On the reverse is the image of Gallus poised to strike on the front lines of the battlefield. He wears a suit of armor and tall, feathered helmet. His spear is prepared to strike the nearest enemy. His name, “Zi:Sin Gallus” is also inscribed on this side of the coin
