Description

Meiji silver 5 Sen Year 25 (1892), struck for exhibit at the Worlds Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1892, type of KM-Y22, JNDA-unlisted, J&V-mentioned as minted for exhibition purposes at the Columbian Exposition, MS62 NGC. Considerable remaining luster, with nice definition. As with the previous Meiji 25 (1892) 1 Rin offered in this sale, this issue was struck long after the last date of this type was produced (1880), and a totally new type of copper-nickel 5 Sen had begun production in 1889. Extremely rare, and the only example we have seen, or heard of being offered for sale.
