The Gaku Ichibu is a rectangular coin from Japan minted in 1599. The first of a 250-year series of rectangular gold ichibu, there's shockingly little information available on the Gaku Ichibu in English. This presentation will chronicle Spurrier's research into the piece with many new insights on the type never before published outside of Japan, as well as corrections to current English references. Plenty of background information will be provided so no prior knowledge of the series is needed. Speaker: Lianna Spurrier.
