More about the Gold Crown:

The gold crown bullion series is based on korean gold crown and the story of imaginary animal known as the gold of sun, Sam-jok-o, known for being a crow with three feet, in the east, crows were ment to connect gods in heaven with people in real life to deliver the god's sayings as a messenger. In the west, crows were meant to help lost sailors find the right way home. What is more interesting is that the gold crown and the crow are deeply related. Etymologically, there is a theory that "Crown" was derived from the word, Crow (Bird's beak or claw shape), which is Korone in Greek language.
