Lot 57: JAPAN, MANEN ERA, 1860-62. AV OBAN (10 RYO). Oval with horizontal indentations and patterned security edge; black ink calligraphy with four mon stamps. Three vertical stamps and three moneyers' stamps lower left on reverse. (c.112.8grams), 135mm x 80mm. Rare. The oban is in well preserved condition showing small amounts of ink loss and surface wear, a dark test mark on upper right of reverse, also a small file mark on security edge c.13mm. (one coin)A similar example can be found in the catalogue of the Japanese Coin Collection at the British Museum. The founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate, Leyasu, established a gold, silver and bronze denomination system that lasted until the Meiji restoration ended the Shogunate's rule. The largest denomination in this coinage system was the Oban gold piece, which was typically used as a special reward or a gift, rather than day to day transactions. The piece on offer is from the Manen era, the final era before the Meiji Restoration and after US Commodore Matthew Perry helped to end Japan's isolationist policies under the Shogunate. The design for this coin features the Kiri crest of the office of the Prime Minister of Japan. The symbol - or mon - is the paulownia flower, and is known as the Princess Tree in Japan. An interesting feature of this piece is its' security edge, which prevents any unscrupulous individuals from shaving or filing the edge of the coin.This rare coin highlights the following collection of Japanese coins, which were amassed over the last twenty or thirty years by a collector who has a particular interest in Japanese coins, art and antiques. This particular piece was purchased from a private estate sale in the 1990's by the present vendor and it is believed not to have exchanged hands since 1928.Estimate: 5000-10000
