The grounds of the Japan Mint contain many, many cherry trees and. every year, during the cherry blossom sakura season, the grounds are opened to the public for cherry blossom viewing. This event is known as “Cherry Blossom Viewing (Sakura no toorinuke)” because people walk along a dedicated one-way path to view the beautiful cherry blossom. Since its inception in 1883 it has remained one of Osaka’s best loved spring traditions.

For 2020, the Japan Mint's Cherry Blossom Coin Set features a special silver medallion, only available in this set! Commemorating the Year of the Rat', the medallion is diamond-shaped, 17.5 millimetres across, and comprises 4.3 grams of .999 silver. 

Also comprising each of the six traditional circulating coins in immaculate uncirculated condition, it is entirely appropriate that one of those coins, the 500 Yen coin (first minted 20 years ago in 2000), is produced using four types of anti counterfeiting technology - latent images, helical ridges, micro dots, and micro stripes!

Highly limited and hard to find outside of Japan, this set is limited to 45,000 sets issued - but ONLY 600 sets were earmarked for markets outside of Japan!!
