About MeI run a coin business called Eikyu Tsuho (pronounced a-q-soo-ho), located in Issaquah, Washington, to buy and sell Japanese cast and struck (mainly Meiji and Taisho, and some early Showa) coinage. I also blog to inform people about the fascinating world of Japanese coins. See my blog at eikyutsuho.com/blog.php or by clicking on the Blog link in the navigation bar, and see the section below on How to Browse The Inventory. Lots are also sold weekly on my eBay page, ebay.com/usr/eikyu_tsuho.

How to Browse The Coins for SaleSee my 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 my 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.
My prices are negotiable; the larger the amount of coins you would like to order, the more of a discount I 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.
How to Order CoinsAfter you have decided which coins you would like to purchase, you will need to submit an order via my Order form.
