Akita Tsuba Sen. Ugo (Dewa) Province in NW Honshu, now Akita Prefecture - No date (1863 - 1866). Other interesting issues were cast during this inflationary period, including some in lead, copper-plated lead, and silver. Issued as 100 mon, it quickly was reduced in trade value to 80 mon.
Heritage Auction Lot#62156. This is the short-tailed Phoenix version which is more common than a long tailed type. The reverse is a Bagua, also known as Eight Trigrams. The Bagua originated in China, and the trigrams, consisting of three broken or unbroken lines, represent, beginning with the one having three unbroken lines and going counter-clockwise: heaven, lake, fire, thunder, wind, water, mountain, and earth. Trigrams are on the reverse, meaning of which will require some research. Copper, 48 x 52.5 mm by 3 mm thick; mass is 46.02 g. H# 7.2; JNDA 139.10; KM# 6.1 (ND 1862)
The shape of this coin is probably based on the 'tsuba', or sword handle guard of the Daimyo of Akita. The Eight Trigrams on the obverse were devised by Fu Xi in about 2800 BC in China. Trigram symbols are used for divination associated with the "I Ching" (Yi Jing, Book of Changes). The reverse depicts a male and female Phoenix used to symbolize good luck. The edge has a stamped "kyu" that indicates the Bunkyu era. JNDA 139.10
