How to create a calculated column needed to hold the previous date from the data column?

I have a date column named 'Min Date'. I would like to created a new calculated column that will hold the previous Min Date value. The below table shows my intention.


Note where the 'Min Date' value is 01/04/2023, the rows 'Previous Min Date' column holds 01/01/2023 which is the very next earlier date in the 'Min Date' column.
Note where the 'Min Date' value is 01/09/2022, the rows 'Previous Min Date' column holds 01/05/02021 which is the very next earlier date in the Min Date column.
I hope this makes sense. Please can you inform me on the DAX needed to created this 'Previous Min Date' column?

@v-yifanw-msft  No. Unfortunately the help above hasn't resolved my issue. However, I've moved on from this initial question and therefore no longer require this particular thread answering.
