The Korean Mint is known as KOMSCO, and it has been around since 1951. In addition to striking circulating South Korean currency, KOMSCO produces gold and silver bullion most commonly in the form of medals. This Silver Tiger Medal is part of the South Korean Tiger Medal program. For its 5th anniversary, this series now follows a traveling tiger cub. The cub gradually matures as it visits some of the most notable South Korean landmarks. The story begins in the capital city of Seoul in the spring. The following releases will spotlight different landmarks and the consecutive season.
The obverse of the 2020 South Korean Silver Tiger Medal bears the youthful tiger cub. It lies across the famous Gwanghwamun, the main gate of the Gyeongbokgung Palace, and gazes at the viewer. The right side bears a paw print and silhouette of the Namsan Seoul Tower. Beneath the cub are azaleas and forsythias in full bloom to signal the season is early spring. Inscriptions include the name of the series, the city, and the weight.
The reverse has a textured background behind the Korean peninsula, the main habitat for the Siberian tiger in South Korea. The peninsula is made up of Korean lettering, known as Hangul. This side also features a KOMSCO hallmark of a yin-and-yang sun and letter “K”. The security detail is found in the purity inscription with letter-changing latent technology.

I went searching for the 2020 Korean tiger after seeing them on YouTube at first I didn’t want to pay the premiums but for a decent price at bullion exchanges I normally use echeck to get the discount but had problems. I placed my order at 6:03 am pdt and had a tracking number by 2:15 pm pdt that was fast to me I have received my order on September 5 . Now that might not seem strange but I have orders from other dealers that took a month to get to me. I will definitely check Bullion Exchanges first for pricing due to the fast shipping(Posted on 9/5/2020)
