APMEX, Inc., a leading Precious Metals e-retailer based in Oklahoma City, is pleased to introduce the second release in the widely popular Chiwoo Cheonwang medal series. This series, produced by KOMSCO, the official mint of South Korea, took the internet by storm with its initial 2016 release and looks to expand on that success in 2017.
Celebrating Chiwoo Cheonwang, each 1 oz Silver medal in this series depicts the legendary figure in various poses, ready for battle. Throughout time, he has come to be known as a symbol for victory and a guardian figure, and each of these designs highlights this strong figure.
Though his name may not be easily recognized today, Chiwoo Cheonwang was influential in Chinese and Korean history around 2600 BCE. Many of his deeds have transformed over the years into mythological stories of power and magic, but the real Chiwoo Cheonwang was a tribal leader of the Nine Li tribe in ancient China. His strong leadership led to him being worshipped as the God of War.
“The popularity of the Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver Medal is at an all-time high,” Director of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “We are pleased to offer this Silver piece to our customers who have patiently awaited its release. The limited mintage and incredibly detailed design make this item a must have.”
The first Chiwoo Cheonwang Silver Medal release in 2016 garnered an impressive following and the 2017 issue is sure to enjoy the same widespread appeal. The low mintage and .999 fine Silver content make these medals perfect for both collectors and investors. The design also incorporates “1 CLAY”, which was a new concept on measurement introduced on the inaugural release.
