Product Details
From Scottsdale Mint comes the Samurai Archives, an annual low mintage bullion program. The inaugural issue features the 12th-century samurai Taira no Kiyomori, a powerful and influential Japanese military leader during the late Heian period in Japan.

As the head of the fearsome Taira clan, Kiyomori gained prominence through his military triumphs during the Hogen and Heiji Rebellions. Tiara no Kiyomori came to dominate the court politics as well, bringing an end to the direct Imperial rule and establishing the first samurai-dominated administrative government in the history of Japan.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Each coin comes in a protective plastic capsule with mint issued box and certificate of authenticity.
  • Very low mintage of 2,500 coins.
  • Obverse: Features the Fijian coat of arms accompanied by traditional Japanese Patterns.
  • Reverse: The colorized image on the reverse side of the coins is based on the artwork of the 19th century Japanese ukiyo-e artist, Utagawa Hiroshige. Hiroshige's woodblock print titled Taira no Kiyomori's Spectral Vision depicting the samurai Kiyomori as a veteran of battle in the later stages of his life. As he looks out over the snow-covered garden from the veranda of his palace home, he is haunted by vision of the skeletons of his many slain enemies.
  • This coin is manufactured and distributed by Scottsdale Mint and is legal tender in Fiji.
