When it comes to cultural lore in Korea, few animals are as important as the tiger. This revered creature is found throughout the stories of the founding mythology of the Korean peninsula and people. Beyond its use in mythology, the tiger is depicted across popular culture and Korean folk art. Right now, you can buy the 2019 South Korean Tiger 1 oz Gold Medal online from Provident Metals.

On the obverse side of 2019 South Korean Tiger 1 oz Gold Medals is the image of a Korean tiger.

The reverse face of 2019 South Korean Tiger Gold Medals bears a depiction of the Korean peninsula from the border with China in the north to the shores of the Sea of Japan in the south.

Inscriptions here include Republic of Korea and Fine Gold 999, with tiger stripes along the rim on the sides.
Korean tigers no longer exist in the wild. The term Korean tiger refers to the Siberian tiger that used to inhabit large swaths of Russia and East Asia. The Siberian tiger is now confined to the Russian Far East and North China, but once roamed through Mongolia, broad swaths of China, and the Korean peninsula.
South Korean Tiger 1 oz Gold Medals are available to purchase from KOMSCO, the Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation. The company is a government-owned entity that serves as the official mint of the Republic of Korea.
