The history of the phoenix, the mythical bird that ages, dies, and regenerates anew, is deep in Korean culture. Cave paintings of the phoenix date back 1,000 years in Korea, while its use in culture date to the formation of the Joseon Dynasty. It was first described and used by the rulers of the dynasty starting in 1392. Provident Metals now offers 1 oz Silver 2020 South Korean Phoenix Medals to you for online purchase.

A phoenix is depicted in a typical Western cultural motif on the obverse of 1 oz Silver 2020 South Korean Phoenix Medals. This design showcases the flowing, elegant feathers of the phoenix as it flies with its wings spread to the fullest. Inscriptions on this side beneath the figure of the bird include Korean Phoenix and 2020.
On this face of the coin, you will also find a new latent security image struck into the coin by KOMSCO. A new version of its latent security feature, this new design includes vertical lines and changes based on your viewing angle. As you adjust that angle, you will notice the Korean language markings of either Bong or Hwang, the Korean word for the phoenix.
Two phoenixes are depicted on the reverse of the 1 oz Silver 2020 South Korean Phoenix Medal in profile relief. The birds are shown opposite of one another looking inward, with the bird on the right holding an orb in its beak just as the phoenix on the obverse is. The Taeguk is featured in the center between the two. This is based on the seal of the President of the Republic of Korea. Inscriptions read Republic of Korea, KOMSCO, and 1 oz Fine Silver 999.
Beginning in 1392, the Joseon Dynasty began to use the phoenix symbolism in its Phoenix Throne. This was used, in particular, to describe the rulers of the Joseon Dynasty. The phoenix remained in used during the foundation of the Empire of Korea in 1897, but was removed when Japan invaded the Korean peninsula in 1910. The phoenix returned though in 1967 as part of the presidential seal for the Republic of Korea.
