New (Shin) 1 Mon
Produced from 1668-1867, Shin Kanei Tsuho come in hundreds of varieties, from very affordable types to exceedingly rare, and therefore expensive, coins. Many different mintmarks also exist, ranging from the very common Bun mintmark (1668, Kameido) to the scarce Ichinose mintmark. These coins were at first large high-quality copper coins, but became increasingly small and debased as time went on due to a shortage of copper. Some later issues were even produced in iron, but these are covered on another page. If you are looking for a specific coin but do not see it listed below, please contact us via the Contact Us page. We have many more varieties that are not currently listed. Bulk new 1 mon (quantities of greater than 10) are $0.80 each (you can choose varieties, but the total number of coins needs to be more than 10).
