South Korean Gold and Silver Tigers - Famous for their Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver Bullion series, KOMSCO, the official mint of South Korea, launched the 1 oz Silver Bullion series along with the 1 oz, 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz Gold Tiger coins. Now, 1/10 oz Gold and 10 oz Silver coins are available in this stunning series. These coins feature the endangered Korean Tiger, also known as the Siberian Tiger. The legend says, that the last Korean Tiger was seen and hunted on Mount Daeduk in Gyeonju in 1922. According to statistics about 400 tigers remain living in the Far Eastern parts or Russia.
Tiger Coin Series
After the Tiger bullion series was launched by KOMSCO in 2016 it was only available in the sizes 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz and 1 oz Gold. In early 2018 the 1 oz Silver Tiger made its debut with a limited mintage of 30,000, significantly lower than the highly sought after Chiwoo Cheonwang series. Now, the new 1/10 oz Gold Tigers have low mintage of 5,000 and the 10 oz Silver have a mintage of just 2,000!
South Korean Tiger Coins
The tiger has been known as the animal that represents South Korea. There was no better fit than the tiger as the design for the bullion series produced by the official mint of the country. With the increasing demand for low mintage premium Gold and Silver bullion, KOMSCO made the decision to extend its range of Tiger bullion medals in 2018.
