Cf. Smirnov 1343 variety, commemorating Japan's decisive victory over Russia in the 1905 Battle of Tsushima.  Struck in Silver.  55mm.

And now for something completely different.

This is an interesting, unusual, superbly preserved, extremely rare and well pedigreed piece featuring a gigantic artillery shell surrounded by Japanese army and navy flags on the obverse, and ringed legends on the reverse.

The piece itself is a magnificent gem with colorful old toning of the sort acquired over a looooong time.

Accompanied by the original leather box of issue bearing an English label for coin dealer Jun Kobayagawa in Yokohama (no website though).

Ex Virgil M. Brand Collection, sold privately by B. G. Johnson [with his ticket] in 1946.
