Owner Comments:

JNDA 01-20. The 1870-1871 20 sen coin is similar to the other silver denominations with the dragon obverse and rising sun reverse motifs. 1870 is notable for a shallow and deep scale variety. 1871 has two variants where a portion of the sen character is weak and is either 'complete' or 'incomplete'. This is the complete variety.

24 mm diameter, 0.800 fine silver, weight 5.00 grams.
