Discover the rich history of Japan with The Samurai Money Set, an exceptional collection that transports you to the era of the last samurais. This unique set features two historically significant copper coins and a rare banknote, each a relic of a bygone era. The 4 Mon and 100 Mon coins, issued between 1768 and 1870, are notable for their distinctive holed design, making them standouts in any collection. Accompanying them is the 1 Monme banknote from 1863, a precious piece of paper currency from the late Edo period. Priced at £125, this set not only offers a glimpse into feudal Japan but also serves as a tangible connection to samurai history. Each piece tells a story of tradition, culture, and the economic landscape of its time, making it a must-have for enthusiasts of both numismatics and Japanese history.
