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.

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.
