Leathered antique coin bracelet for men featuring 2 Tahitian black pearls including one used as clasp as well as a Japanese antique coins, mounted on my precious handworked leather with traditional fisherman knots.
I bought a little lot of aged and patined coins during a “matsuri” in a Shinto shrine, outside of Kyoto / Japan. This cooper is from the period of the Tokugawa shogunate, which ruled from Edo Castle from 1603 until 1868.
The mon (文) was a currency of Japan from the Muromachi period in 1336, until 1870. The Chinese character for mon is 文 and the character for currency was widely used in the Chinese-character cultural sphere, e.g. Chinese wen and Korean mun.
Coins denominated in mon were cast in copper or iron and circulated alongside silver and gold ingots denominated in shu, bu and ryō, with 4000 mon = 16 shu = 4 bu = 1 ryo. The yen replaced these denominations in 1870. However, its usage continued at least into 1871.
This Leathered antique coin bracelet will develop a unique patina when ages.
