I like the 20-sen.

Hey, what about your avatar?

I haven't had too much Japanese silver. I did get this one in a trade (and resold it not long afterwards), about a year or so ago.

The top one has only a single year's date - Showa 32 (1957).

Always have liked Japanese coins, but never pursued aggressively. Years ago I did pick up this interesting yen, year 29 with the gin countermark for overseas circulation. Probably harshly cleaned at some point, but big, cheap and interesting. What's not to like!

My records show that I won this coin in a Stacks auction, back in 2003. However, the photo was taken in 2010, which means I posted this on the Forum once before. Here it is again:

I have always been interested in pre-Meiji era Japanese coins - especially the gold.
