Only 10,000 available outside of Japan!
Of the 100,000 Fukui coins available worldwide, only 10,000 can be acquired outside of Japan. Tottori is the 2011 issue of the 47 Prefectures of Japan Series. This Silver Proof colorized 1,000 yen coin from the Japan Mint is the 15th of the series and is dedicated to the Tottori prefecture.
Tottori is located in the Chugoku region and is the least populous prefecture in Japan. The reverse is an image of the Tottori Sand Dunes and an islet on the San'in Kaigan coast. The Tottori Sand Dunes are coastal sand dunes that represent Japan. The obverse is common to all Silver coins issued in the 47 Prefectures Series and contains a composite design featuring snowflakes, a crescent moon and cherry blossoms.
To mark the 60th anniversary of Enforcement of the Local Autonomy Law, the Japan Mint launched "Japan 47 Prefectures Coin Program" in 2008. In this program, there will be Silver colorized coins of 47 prefectures in Japan issued over an eight-year span. Each coin is encapsulated and housed within an official display case with full-color packaging that doubles as a certificate of authenticity.
