Japan, Tempo 2 Shu-ban-kin Gold

Before these rectangular issues, the Japanese used cash coins, round coins with a square hole in the middle. Because so many of the Cash coins were damaged, the Shogunate in Japan issued these rectangular gold coins. The coins on offer were minted from 1837-1858. The Gold coins are gold mixed with some silver to bring down their face value. All the coins are in Very Fine. Gold: Tempo 2 Shu-ban-kin 1.68 grams.
