AFFORDABLE GOLD COINS


NEW HAMPSHIRE, NEVADA & UTAH GOLDBACK NOTES

1 Goldback Aurum gold notes for New Hampshire, Nevada and Utah
Goldback notes are a voluntary local currency made of 24 karat gold! Each wafer-thin note is coated with a protective plastic coating so it can be circulated without the gold tearing. They are issued in increments of 1/1000 troy ounce of gold in order to allow for small purchases. The 1 Goldback contains 1/1000 troy ounce of gold and measures 66x117mm.  The notes are printed on one side only, with intricate multi-color allegorical 19th century style designs. Goldback Aurum notes have been issued for Utah, Nevada and New Hampshire, states that allow certain forms of gold as legal tender. The notes of each state have unique designs.

RECTANGULAR GOLD COIN FROM THE MEIJI RESTORATION OF JAPAN  Restocked

Japan gold 1 BuThis rectangular gold 2 Bu (Ni Bu) was minted in Japan from 1867 to 1869. It was one of the first coins of the Meiji Restoration. The Meiji Restoration overthew the highly traditional and once powerful Shogun warlords and restored the Emperor as the center of the Japanese government.  The Meiji restoration was also a modernization movement, that opened Japan to western ideas. A few years after this coin was introduced, Japan adopted western style round coins, so these coins were soon withdrawn from circulation and many were melted.    The coin weighs approximately 3 grams and is struck in .223 fine gold.   It is an interesting and historic gold coin that represents the end of Japan's traditional ways under the Shoguns and the introduction of new ways under the Meiji Restoration.
