History of the Chiwoo Cheonwang Coins
You may not recognize the name Chiwoo Cheonwang but he was an influential figure in Chinese and Korean history circa 2600 B.C. Many of his deeds have been transformed over the years into mythological stories of power and magic. We know the real Chiwoo Cheonwang was a tribal leader of the Nine Li tribe in ancient China and his strong leadership led to him being worshiped as the God of War, honored as one of the three legendary founding fathers of China. Of course, it is unlikely that Chiwoo had four eyes, six arms and horns, or that he could breathe fog to obscure the battlefield and summon great storms at his will. Nonetheless, Gold Chiwoo medals celebrate this fascinating historical figure.
