    In ancient times, the Chinese emperors kept Vault Protector coins to bring them good luck/fortune and to protect their treasures. Below is a modern day gold reproduction of the Bao Yuan Vault Protector coin.

    Undated, 1990 minted, proof China 1+ troy ounce (1 tael) .999 gold Bao Yuan Vault Protector coin (the only 1 troy ounce gold Vault Protector coin minted to date).

    Early Japanese kobans (c.1600) weighed 18 grams of 842 fine gold. Kobans made in the mid-1800s weighed 11.2 grams of 600 fine gold. And the last koban made in the 1860s weighed only 3.3 grams of 600 fine gold. Below is a modern day reproduction of the 1600's Japan Keicho Koban.

    1990 struck BU Japan Keicho Koban. This recently issued Japan Mint Keicho Koban commemorative is an impressive size of 75mm x 38mm and weighs 19.5 grams of pure (9999 fine) gold. They are made in the classic way, hand struck with a number of punches indicating the denomination, authority under which it was issued, the mint and the era during which it was produced.

    image.jpeg Aided by advancements in technology, the United States Mint can produce, in quantity, the ultra high relief coin envisioned, but never fully realized, by Roosevelt and Saint–Gaudens in 1907. Through 21st century technology, original Saint–Gaudens coin plasters were digitally mapped by the United States Mint. The Saint–Gaudens sculpture – in ultra high relief – has been updated to reflect the year 2009; four stars have been added to represent the current 50 states; and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, which was not on the 1907 version, will be on the reverse (tails side) of the coin. Additionally, a small border was added for a more consistent edge. The 2009 coin will be made of 24–karat gold. The new 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will have the nominal denomination of $20.

    The original coinage tools have been preserved and they were entrusted to the Royal Mint Engraving Team who, for the £5, the double-sovereign and the sovereigns of 2009, manufactured the coinage dies directly from Pistrucci's originals dating back to 1817.

    If you wanted to expand your parameters a bit there's the 2001 3¢ stamp and coin commemorative or the 2008 50¢ Milk Token triangular coin.
