The Samurai is one of the most important symbols not only from Japan, but from universal history. A Samurai represents that a true warrior must defend ideas like loyalty, courage, veracity, compassion, and honour. This is called Bushido, the 8 codes of honour and ideals that a Samurai follows.
The meaning of the word Samurai is “ones who serve”. A bar of silver is a respectable canvas to mint the art of a Samurai.
This bar of silver features a standing Samurai in a defensive position wearing a full armour including the well-known Samurai mask used for protecting the face and to strike terror into enemies. This armour is called Karuta (karuta-gane) from the Portuguese word for “card” because of the rectangle card-shaped pieces of the armour. Samurai for a time used gold and silver bars as currency, a bar of silver was called Shu-Gin.
