About new coins in the 8th century

In 708 AD, Musashi province, today's Tokyo, Saitama, Kanagawa area, sent copper as a tribute to the Court.

 
Then the Court minted copper coins and silver coins called WadoKaichin.
 
It was the second time to mint coins in Japan's history.
 
The Court encouraged people to use coins, but only people around the capital used the coins and most people in other areas traded by bartering crops and cloth.
 
The coins were mainly used as payment for building the capital.
