In the late 16thcentury, the rulers of Japan introduced a new form of gold coinage that would go on to form part of a three-tiered monetary system that would persist for more than 200 years. The Oban was a popular oval-shaped gold coin used in Japan and is remembered today as a truly unique piece of coinage history. Provident Metals now has 2 oz Silver Oban Commemorative Medals replicating the original Oban available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase one of these 2 oz Silver Oban Commemorative Medals online at Provident Metals, you will receive a silver medal that is housed in a protective acrylic capsule and offered with a presentation box. Each medal comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity and distinctive visual finishes. These finishes include a hammered texture on both sides, as well as hand-applied ink on the inscriptions on both fields.
The obverse of the 2 oz Silver Oban Medal replicates the appearance of one of the original Oban gold coin plates. These inscriptions include Kiri stamps with red ink applied on the stamps and black in on the Japanese text.
On the reverse side of 2 oz Silver Oban Commemorative Medals, you will find additional Japanese text inscriptions. This side of the replica medal comes inscriptions of 2 TROY OUNCES .999 FINE SILVER.
The original Oban coinage was a gold coin plate that was the highest denomination in a three-tiered system of Japanese coinage. This system of coinage consisted of bronze, silver, and gold coins. Each one of these Silver Oban Commemorative Medals has a 24-karat gold plating to better replicate the appearance of an Oban coin.
