Origin: These 17th century coins were produced in the Japanese port of Nagasaki, the only major trading port in then-isolationist Japan. They were designed to match Song dynasty copper cash coins from China, though the typeface was often changed.

Although Japan remained mostly isolated during the Tokugawa Shogunate's sakoku policies, there were notable exceptions where trade did occur. Japan conducted limited but substantial trade with China, Korea, Vietnam, and even the Dutch East India Company. These trade coins were so common in Southeast Asia that they found success as a local currency in Vietnam and Indonesia.
