Over the course of eight centuries, Japanese military forces were anchored by the fearsome and skilled Samurai. The Samurai were a noble class of military warriors employed by feudal and medieval landowners to lead local forces in battles against combating warlords or landholders.

From the 12th century until the 1870s when the Samurai were abolished, the primary role of Samurai was to organize the defenses and lead local armies in battle at the employment of individual landholders and feudal lords. Each Samurai warrior was attached to a specific landlord. The very name Samurai signified the role of the warriors as the word translates as “ones who serve.”
On the obverse face of each 10 oz Silver Samurai Bar is a depiction of a Samurai warrior with his sword drawn ready to defend himself. With one foot forward and another back, he adopts a fighter’s stance. His sword his drawn and his full armor is one to protect him. Inscriptions on this side of the bar include the weight, purity, and metal content.
The reverse of all 10 oz Silver Samurai Bars comes with a simple design element. This stylized Japanese artwork repeats across the surface of the bar on this side. Samurai famously lived by a code of honor that included eight factors, each one outlining the ideas a true warrior must defend. These included loyalty, courage, veracity, compassion, and honor.
All Samurai Silver Bars are a product of the Golden State Mint. Founded in 1974, Jim Pavlakos formed the Golden State Mint in Central Florida and now works alongside his son Andrew in guiding the mint forward into the future with its designs and product lineups.
