    Although this is round, it is really round. It is a sphere. 33mm .999 Silver.

    Not round has made it as a theme in the coin Uno thread. I have been super sluggish with my photos of late, and haven't really bought much of anything (a couple medals/plaques mostly) so, these are repeat photos most likely. combo.jpg combo fafafa.jpg combo.jpg pre meiji combo.jpg JNDA 0945 combo.jpg manen combo cropped.jpg

    Just one of the much smaller manen koban. As low as you can go on the weight and purity (and price) scale. Dates from 1860-1867. Hubs got it for me one anniversary when we lived in Japan. A man who truly understands his wife! Flowers are nice, gold is better, and pre-monetary reform Japanese gold money is the best!

    Oh a Koban. Still an amazing coin. I enjoy seeing a woman being so passionate about coins. You have an impressive coin collection.
