Jan. 2014 500 Yen Coins




In January, the next set of 47 Prefecture 500 Yen Coins hits the banks. Since it included the one for Kagoshima, that coin got bought up really fast here. Unfortunately, there aren't that many big banks in Kagoshima city, meaning that even for the coins in lesser demand, there aren't that many banks that even carry them. In any event, I picked up Shizuoka, Okayama and Yamanashi.

The next set will probably come out in July, for Yamagata, Mie and Ehime. The series started issuing in 2008. Coins for 32 of the prefectures have been released so far, and I've got 12 of them right now.

If anyone who knows me and is living in Tokyo can get their hands on one of the Kagoshima 500 yen coins for me, please let me know.
