Specializing in Japanese Cast and Struck Coinage
I run an online coin business called Eikyu Tsuho (pronounced a-q-soo-ho), located in Issaquah, Washington, to buy and sell Japanese cast and struck coinage. I also blog to inform people about the fascinating world of Japanese coins. See my blog at blog.eikyutsuho.tk or by clicking on the Blog link in the navigation bar, and see the section below on how to browse our inventory. Lots are also sold weekly on my eBay page, www.ebay.com/usr/eikyu_tsuho.

How to Browse Our Coins for Sale
See our Japanese Coins for Sale page here or by clicking on the Coins for Sale link in the navigation bar for a list of links. Each link is a different denomination, and the links are organized by country and then increasing denomination. Each one of these links points to a separate page on which our coin listings are organized by date. Note: some of the coins have reflections on their edges which may look like rim nicks even though they do not have them; if the coin does have rim nicks, I will note it in the notes section.
All coins are problem free (in the case of cast coins, this means no holes, cracks, large bends, etc.; for struck coins this means not cleaned, no rim nicks, etc.) unless stated otherwise in the Notes section.
Our prices are negotiable; the larger the amount of coins you would like to order, the more of a discount we can offer; see the How to Order Coins section for details on how to make offers.
Note: I am currently adding coins, so please check back often.
So far, I have added all coins (from the Meiji-Reiwa period) up to the 10 Sen, although the 10 sen have not yet been priced.
