Japan 47 Prefectures Coin Program
To mark the 60th Anniversary of Enforcement of the Local Autonomy Law, we launched “Japan 47 Prefectures Coin Program” in 2008. In this program, we will have issued silver coins and bi-color clad coins of 47 prefectures in Japan for several years. Obverse is each prefecture’s own design and reverse design is all the same.
(Common reverse design of 1000 yen silver coin: Snow Crystals, Moon and Cherry Blossoms)
(Common reverse design of 500 yen bi-color coin: Shape of Japanese old coin)
Through this program, we hope you have interest not only in our coins but also in Japanese own history, nature, culture, and others.
