Contains 1/2 Troy oz of .999 pure silver in BU condition. Issued a value of 1/2 Clay. The series currently includes 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold options, and the continued popularity of the coins with their evolving reverse designs led to the introduction of these 1/2 oz silver coins.

Modern Koreans know Chiwoo Cheonwang as the mascot of the Red Devils, the rabid fan base supporting the Republic of Koreas national soccer team. People believe his powers helped propel the team to a semifinal appearance at World Cup 2002 in South Korea/Japan. In ancient Korean mythology though, Chiwoo is said to have been the 14th head of the state of Shinshi, the first of Koreas ancient states.
