In 2017, after two successful issues of the Chiwoo Cheonwang series, APMEX was pleased to discover special 2016 versions that had been produced but never made available to the public. Among these was the 2016 1 oz Gold medal, providing even more beauty and depth to the already popular inaugural design.
