Product Details

Only 10,000 available outside Japan!
Of the 100,000 Hyogo coins available worldwide, only 10,000 can be acquired outside of Japan. This Silver Proof colorized 1,000 yen coin from the Japan Mint is the 24th of the series and is dedicated to the Hyogo prefecture.

The Hyogo Prefecture coin has an image of the Oriental white stork and Himeji Castle. Japanese oriental white storks became extinct in 1986 but Japan succeeded in breeding individuals and the number has since increased. Himeji Castle is said to have been built first by a lord of Akamatsu clan. Himeji Castle was designated as a National Treasure in 1951.

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 all 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.
