KOMSCO made a huge splash with numismatists in 2016 when it unveiled not one, but two major silver and gold bullion medal collections. While the Chiwoo Cheonwang Series has garnered a lot of deserved attention, the South Korean Tiger Medals are equally impressive in their ever-changing designs of the Korean Tiger on the obverse. Right now, 1/2 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals are available to purchase from random years online from Wallace Precious Metals.

Each of the 1/2 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals in this product listing comes to you with a protective capsule to house the coin. These coins come to you today from a random-year allotment. This means that we select your coins at random once your payment has processed. We cannot guarantee a specific date mark or corresponding design issued in that year by KOMSCO.
The 1/2 oz South Korean Tiger Series launched with only gold medals available in 2016. The collection features a new design on the obverse each year, capturing the Korean Tiger in a different relief. The reverse design field has the same design each year. Please keep in mind that buying multiple coins through this listing could result in receiving more than one coin of the same date mark and design.
On the obverse of 1/2 oz South Korean Tiger Gold Medals is a depiction of the Korean tiger. The use of the term Korean tiger is a regional term for the Siberian tiger species at large. Though the massive cats no populate predominantly the Russian Far East and Northeast China, their native range once included Mongolia, greater portions of China, and the entire Korean peninsula. The last Korean tiger seen on the peninsula was killed in the 1920s at its very southern point.
The reverse of 1/2 oz South Korean Tiger Medals features the image of the Korean peninsula depicted in Hangul. Hangul is the term for the Korean alphabet, with each of its letters used to craft a depiction of the peninsula without political boundaries separating North from South.
