The medallion’s obverse features a tiger growling in defense with exposed fangs. You can see the intricate details of the tiger’s fur and whiskers. Inscriptions include “KOREAN TIGER,” along with the weight and year of issue.
The reverse shows an artistic interpretation of the Korean map, assembled from letters of the Korean alphabet stacked at different angles. To the left, you’ll find the national symbol that appears on South Korea’s flag, while an anti-counterfeiting device is seen on the right. Inscriptions include “REPUBLIC OF KOREA” and “FINE SILVER 999,” situated within a border of tiger stripes.
Each 1 oz Silver Tiger medallion is issued by KOMSCO, a private Korean mint, without a monetary denomination. South Korean ranks among the “Four Tigers of Asia” with China, Japan, and Taiwan.
Since 1951, KOMSCO has been producing secure bullion products and currency. The company has expanded over the decades to include products like ID cards and electronic passports. KOMSCO now exports these products to over 40 countries around the world.
