The currency introduced in 16th-century Japan looks unlike anything the modern world has ever seen. Using a three-tiered monetary system, shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu introduced a form of money that would persist in Japan throughout the entirety of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. In fact, it wasn’t until 1867 that it was replaced by decimalized, machine-struck coinage. Right now, 1 oz Gold Oban Commemorative Medals are available to purchase online from Silver.com.

Each 1 oz Gold Oban Commemorative Medal available here in this Silver.com listing comes with beautiful visuals. The texture of the gold coins is courtesy of a hammered finish and the ink signatures, both the black on the obverse/reverse and the red on the obverse, were finished with hand applications.

The Oban was issued in Japan beginning around the late 1500s. The Oban was the largest denomination within a three-tiered monetary system used at the time. This system consisted of Mon coins, the smallest denomination. These coins employed a copper alloy for each piece. The middle tier of coinage featured a gold-silver alloy, while the Koban and Oban at the top of the system used a similar gold-silver alloy.

On the obverse of Gold Oban Commemorative Medals, you will find a depiction of a Japanese script replicating the original Oban specimens. This field includes three diamond-shaped Kiri stamps, each one finished with red ink.

The reverse side of the 1 oz Gold Oban Commemorative Medal comes with more Japanese script inspired by the original Oban coins. This side also features the noticeable gold plug, a feature that helps ensure the 1 Troy oz gold content of these commemorative coins. Both sides have a unique texture that comes courtesy of a hammered finish.

It is estimated that there are just six surviving specimens of the original Oban coinage. One of these items recently sold for more than $1.9 million. While this is well beyond the comfort level of many modern bullion investors, that doesn’t mean you can’t own something created in its likeness!
