South Korea Offers a “Ghostly” New Slant on the Year of the Pig

Most people are familiar with the menagerie of animals that populate the lunar zodiac. Each year is represented by its own creature – a pig in 2019, a dog in 2018, a rooster in 2017, and so. But did you known that there are also 12 celestial guardians that protect mankind and serve mankind along with the lunar animals? It’s true, and now they form the basis of a fascinating series of pure silver medals from South Korea that puts a new spin on the traditional conception of the lunar year!

Struck by the government-owned Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation (KOMSCO), the ZI:SIN Medal Series uses Korean gods and goddesses that directly relate to the lunar animals. Pronounced “Chingus,” ZI-SIN translates to the “Twelve Guardians,” in English. The third release in the series is this 2019-dated medal depicting the warrior goddess Scrofa. Minted in a full ounce of 99.9% silver, the medal shows the battle-hardened goddess dressed in armor and regalia reflective of the pig. Known as Justice Haechi, Scrofa stand resolute with her sword ready to defend the world against threats to the sacred Salt-Lake, a divine passageway between the mortal and immortal worlds.

What makes this particular medal even more fascinating is the addition of a “ghost” image. One of Scrofa’s abilities is to become a doppelganger – a body double – of someone else. In an effort to mimic that legendary ability, KOMSCO included a special variant among its release of these medals. On these pieces, the variant replicates the design of the standard Scrofa medal but with an incused, hooded doppelganger of herself standing behind her! It’s eerie and totally cool!

The One-Ounce Silver Ghost Scrofa Medals in this offer have been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition a distinction that means each perfectly-graded medal will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has graded these Silver Scrofa Medals to be First Releases (FR) pieces, a designation that means each medal was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. They will come sonically sealed in acrylic holders with exclusive South Korea-themed labels.

Just 10,000 of the magnificent silver beauties have been authorized for worldwide release. Coin collectors, lunar zodiac aficionados and silver stackers alike will all be battling for these coins.
