New Book on Japanese Cash Coins




Brand new book on a rare subject called HISTORY AND GUIDE TO THE COPPER CASH COINAGE OF JAPAN Jones.



This reference book is 8.5x11 inches, illustrated card covers, 154 numbered pages, copyright 2007, frontispiece penned by Ogawa Hiroshi. It begins with a newly edited, revised, and annotated version of the Polder's Abridged History of the Copper Coins of Japan with the original plates. It is NOT the same as the simple xerox copy of the work published in the 80s. This new work is a totally overhauled edtion. Following it is a nine page paper called the Enigma Surrounding the Medieval Coinage of the Ryukyu Islands in which the writer disproves the notion that the so-called Ryuyku cash coins of the 15th century could have been made in Okinawa or the Ryukyu. This paper is followed by the Attribution Guide to the Cash Coins of Japan with identifying features describing 356 types and varieties from the Nara-Heian Period through the Meiji restoration.
