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.

Medal Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside plastic capsules with a presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity included!
  • Replica of the historic 16th-century Oban gold ingots!
  • Mintage limited to 5,000 medals only!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .9999 fine gold.
  • On the obverse are three diamond-shaped Kiri stamps and black-ink script.
  • The reverse field features additional scripts in black ink with a gold plug.
  • Hand-finished ink signatures.
  • Hammered field creates the unique visual texture.

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!

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
