And what might that name be?
The name, as Lomaster and Toritoribe pointed out, is Nakajima.
You can find the name toward the bottom of the fabulous site here
Japanese Seto porcelain ware
Just a slight correction to Lomaster's original post: it doesn't actually say "Empire of" (帝国), although that is often inferred from the "Dai-Nippon" of the pre-war era.

Top one is Saiyūki 西遊記, or Journey to the West. I think there was a TV program based on it called Monkey King (or sometimes just Monkey).
Bottom one might be a character from that story.

The second one is indeed another name of a character 沙悟浄 Sa Gojō/Sha Wujing, as Majestic-san presumed. It would be just a medal, not a coin.
