The combined artistic tradition known as manga and anime has centuries-old roots in Japan that go back to the 13th century at least. The nation’s most popular folktale — which features the conquering hero Momotaro who defeated marauding Oni (“demons” or “ogres”) to free his home — most likely goes back just as far, although it first appeared in written form in the early Edo Period. The Legends of Japan collection brings the vibrant anime tradition together with one of Japan’s most iconic legends for the 2020 Samoa Momotaro and Demon Subdued in Anime 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2020 Samoa Momotaro and Demon Subdued in Anime Silver Coin features detailed engravings and comes in a secure plastic capsule, with each shipment fully insured by Provident Metals.
The coin’s obverse side features Samoa’s coat of arms to verify it as legal tender, along with inscriptions confirming the coin’s weight, silver contents, and year and country of issue, surrounded by a decorative border.
The reverse side features anime-style artwork of Momotaro standing atop a defeated Oni and waving his signature war banner. The scene overlaps a decorative border that matches the obverse.
The popular folktale of Momotaro first appeared in print in the early 17th century and has taken many forms in different eras and regions of Japan. Its best-known form was taught to schoolchildren during the Meiji Period: this is the version that saw him born from a giant peach and filled with energetic bravery and optimism that would make him a role model for students. This version of Momotaro was superhumanly strong even in early childhood, and by the time he was an adolescent was ready to overthrow the demonic band of Oni marauders who had long menaced his home. We seem him on the reverse side of this collectible in the wake of his defeat of the Chief of the Oni.
