Commemorative coin for IMF meet


Japan will issue a special coin to commemorate its first hosting of the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in 48 years, the Finance Ministry said Friday.

The ministry plans to issue 50,000 coins with a face value of ¥1,000 priced at ¥8,000 each, with orders to be taken from late September, it said.

The coin, made of 92.5 percent silver and the rest copper, will be engraved on one side with a woodblock print of Mount Fuji and commoners from the Edo Period (1603-1868), and on the reverse with a global map.
