The design on the Tokushima coin shows Awa dancers. The woman wears an Amigasa hat. The man seems to brandish a fan. Similar festivals (Awa Odori) take place elsewhere, such as in Paris.

Peter

You're absolutely right.

Tokushima - Festival Awa-Odori


Yamaguchi - Pagoda Temple Rurikoji


Fukuoka - Kyushu National Museum, Taiko-bashi bridge in the Japanese garden of the Temple Tenman-gu and blossoming branch of Japanese plums

Last two (#46 and #47) issues of the series (dated 2016):

Fukushima (Soma Nomaoi Festival) and Tokyo (Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building and Gyoko Street).

Likely to be issued in July 2016?

Side Note: Four issues of 2015 (Chiba, Nagasaki, Osaka & Wakayam) were indeed issued in January 2016.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Gentlemen,

It might be a bit out of date, but I wonder what Japanese coin is on the reverse of this beautiful series?

Best regards,
Alexander

Your question is not clear to me, cam. Please consider amplifying.

Peter, there is an old coin on the obverse centre of 500 yen. For me, it looks like an old cast Mon coin.

Andrew below shared a link with an answer: Before anyone goes looking through catalogues of ancient coins to find out what coin is represented on the 500 yen coin, look closely at the first four characters by the denomination on the Y1000 - they just read "regional self-government", neatly arranged in old "cash coin" style.
