The koban (???) unknow exactly as what this is gold color possably was a Japanese oval gold coin in Edo period feudal Japan, equal to one ryU, another early Japanese monetary unit.
It was a central part of Tokugawa coinage. The KeichU era koban, a gold piece, contained about one ryU of gold, so that koban carried a face value of one ryU. However,successive mintings of the koban had varying (usually diminishing) amounts of gold. As a result, the ryU as a unit of weight of gold and the ryU as the face value of the koban were no longer synonymous.this means gold is not pure and varies on the pureness it may contain, in order to properly test it would render this item useless as collectable item therefore sold as gold color as shown not tested as to fineness. and purity. weight is 11 grams size shown is against ruler this appears to be wavy or rolled out or bent. see pictures
