Why purchase this 2018 1 oz. Silver bullion coin commemorating Samurai Kiyomori?
The Silver Samurai bullion series produced by the Scottsdale Mint honors iconic Samurai warriors in the style of classic Japanese art. Struck for issue by Fiji from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver with a mintage limited to just 15,000 coins, this first release of the series memorializes Samurai Taira no Kiyomori.
Gorgeously Detailed Design Inspired by Japanese Art
Kiyomori is illustrated on the reverse seated in a snowy garden accompanied by skull shaped reminders of his past deeds, with "KIYOMORI" inscribed above. The image closely resembles a portion of the woodblock print titled "Tairo no Kiyomori's Spectral Vision" by 19th century artist Utagawa Hiroshige.
The Republic of Fiji's Coat of Arms is centered on the obverse, encircled by the inscriptions "FIJI 2018," "1 DOLLAR," "1 TROY OZ" and "999 FINE SILVER." The emblem is framed by a patchwork of intricate patterns similar to those found on a Japanese quilt.
