In 2021, the Japanese Yen turns 150! Not only that, the government of the time, the Meiji, also established the Mint of Japan in the same year, 1871! That makes this official Japan coin set a DOUBLE celebration!
An official annual release from the Japan Mint, that comprises six brilliant uncirculated coins, this Mint Set also features a special red brass medal featuring this year’s oriental zodiac animal, the Ox.
Released in HUGE numbers to the Japanese collector community, the set is (as always) HEAVILY RESTRICTED of the country. Just 584 of the 2021 Japan Mint Set will emerge into the rest of the world. Considering the important anniversary of this set, that is truly a TINY figure.
