The common reverse of Japanese 500 yen commemorative coins (prefectures' series) shows shape of old Japanese coins.


Interesting that it's just the *style* of the old coins that has been used - the legend on the "cash coin" reads something like "Regional Self-Government", which represents the theme of the series.

After jellyfish and insects on coins, why not do something wild and crazy, such as ... coins on coins? In 2005 Italy participated in the euro/star program with an interesting visualization of the "peace" theme: One side shows a Roman sestertius coin from 69 AD featuring a goddess of peace with an olive twig and a horn of plenty.

I now have the Italian coin Christian mentioned. :) Looks very pretty, I'm sure Ginger will love it too! ;)
