Talk about holding history in your hands - literally! This 1668-Bun 1 Mon Square Hole Kanei Tsuho coin is 340 years old! It was cast in solid copper nearly three and a half centuries ago in what is now modern Tokyo, then called Edo (Yedo or Yeddo). These coins were issued by the most powerful warlord in the land, the de facto ruler of Japan, the Tokugawa Shogun Ietsuna, the fourth of this dynasty. Think of all the hands this coin has passed through and how much history it has witnessed!
