This design is called the "weights design".
Weights are used to measure the weight of an object manually. These tools, used to weigh gold, silver, copper, and so on, were an auspicious motif since they symbolized wealth. The weights used were different from those common nowadays, as seen in this design.
Because it represents gold, it is used widely as an auspicious motif.
Moreover, on contemporary Japanese maps, it is used as a symbol to denote a bank.
