Rendered in a beautiful antiqued finish, this extraordinary pure silver collectible is part of the Legends of Japan collection and its Momotaro coin series. It shows the legendary hero and his animal companions as samurai storming the beaches of Onigashima or “Demon Island,” a key scene in the hero’s quest to liberate his homeland from piratical oppression. The Oni (“demons” or “ogres”) had stolen centuries’ worth of wealth from the village of Momotaro’s parents, and his quest to avenge that offense led to the restoration of that stolen wealth to the hero’s homeland, along with establishing peace between monsters and humans. This mythical triumph is celebrated by the 2021 Antique Samoa Momotaro Onto Demon Island in Ukiyoe 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2021 Samoa Momotaro Onto Demon Island in Anime Silver Coin features high-relief, detailed engravings with a beautiful antique finish. It comes in a secure plastic capsule, and is fully insured against loss or damage by Provident Metals.
The coin’s obverse side sports the official Samoan coat of arms to verify it as legal tender. It’s accompanied by inscriptions confirming the coin’s weight, silver contents, and year and country of issue, surrounded by a decorative border.
The reverse side of this coin features Momotaro and his friends storming the beach of Onigashima in samurai regalia. The scene overlaps a decorative border and features stylized waves in the foreground.
According to the standard version of the tale taught to schoolchildren of the Meiji Era, the supernatural hero Momotaro was born from a giant peach by the will of the Gods in answer to the prayers of a childless couple. He manifested supernatural strength as a child and became a conqueror as an adolescent, recruiting a group of animal companions to help him conquer the monstrous band of Oni (“demons” or “ogres”) who oppressed his home. The folktale hero has been an inspirational example to multiple generations of Japanese children, and the Legends of Japan collection memorializes him in theukiyo-estyle of the Edo Period when his stories first became literature.
