Gold and Silver Money of the Samurai

The 17th century money of Japan is one of the most unique and fascinating currencies ever issued. They are known as ‘circulating treasure’ and hark back to the magical time of Japanese Samurai.

Gold and Silver Money of the Samurai

This set contains four original Japanese coins, two gold and two silver, known as “bar money”. They are presented in a deluxe wooden presentation case with a certificate of authenticity.

These distinctly Asian coins reflect the rich samurai culture of feudal Japan. When these coins were in use, Japan was ruled by traditional Samurai lords who had cultivated their warrior philosophy for more than a millennium.

Extremely Rare

Issued over 250 years ago, over 8,000 miles away, they are understandably extremely difficult to source in the UK.

In fact, these are rarely found in Japanese collections. They’re almost unheard of in our country.

Using our extensive network of international suppliers, we now have a small stock of Samurai money available for Westminster collectors. But they’re sure to be in high demand, you’ll need to act now while they’re still available!
