Building on the global popularity of its Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver Medals, KOMSCO and the Republic of Korea have introduced a brand-new series of silver and gold medals that celebrate the famed Twelve Guardians of Korean lore. The series will eventually feature 12 designs in total, and launches with the Gallus design.

Medal Highlights:

  • 1st issue in the Zi:Sin Series from KOMSCO!
  • Limited mintage of only 33,300!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver in BU condition.
  • Obverse features the revered shield of Chiwoo Cheonwang, the God of War.
  • Reverse depicts the figure of Gallas, a military guardian.

The new Zi:Sin Series from KOMSCO is also known as the Twelve Guardians. For the Korean people, the belief in the Twelve Guardians reflected a collection of twelve commanders who would lead God’s army in the protection against evil forces coming from all 12 directions. This offered protection to the world from all directions at all times.

Gallus is the first release in the series, which features both silver and gold medals. The medals are available in this bullion release, as well as later releases of a proof version. Gallus is a messenger of light, displaying a light as bright as the sun.

The obverse of the 2017 1 oz South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Silver Medal features the image of Chiwoo Cheonwang’s battle shield. On the face of his shield is the head Do ggae bi, a mythical being referred to by some as a ghost or monster that was often hung at the ends of roof tiles on homes as a strong spiritual presence to ward off evil spirits. This face also contains the engravings of the nation of issue, mint mark, weight, purity, metal content, year of issue, and the latent security image of KOMSCO coins.

On the reverse of the South Korean Zi:Sin Gallus Silver Medal features the image of Gallus. Dressed in full battle regalia, the light of Gallus on the battlefield helped to disperse the demons of the dark side. He also had a powerful roar that instilled fear in even the most evil demons, and the point of his helmet enabled him to foresee upcoming events.

Customer Reviews

"Amazing service and hospitality from the staff at IDC! Jason was so attentive and patient in our search for our ideal watches. He took us through several options, had us try every watch we were interested in, took our information and continued searching for options. A few hours later, we had our watches on hold and ready for pick up! He located a watch that I LOVE, and a unique piece for my husband. We are grateful to have found our new Jeweler for many pieces to come!"
