In the 17Th centaury bronze coins were minted
These had standard size and weight controlled by ruling Shogun
The shogunate government started to mint silver coins by tale
Such coins like Chogin ,silver slugs and mameitagin,bean shaped liver coins were measured by weight minted in Ginza mint
These coins were high standard as previous century coins were not standard and caused economic chaos.
