Japanese Collector's Coins, 2012, Again
I'd mentioned these 3 coins back in December. The photos kept coming out blurry so I put them on the scanner, which isn't really ideal either since the metal reflects the light back so well. These are bi-metal coins, and the outer ring is more yellow than is shown here. The reverse side is identical for all three coins. There were 6 coins total released in 2012, but only 3 are still in the bank I bought them from. Coin-Database.com shows the next three for 2013 as being for Miyagi, Gunma and Hiroshima prefectures. No announced release dates yet.
