Fukui is featured on the 10th Prefecture coin. The design pictures a fierce Dinosaur with a dramatic ocean and cliff scene facing the Sea of Japan in the background.

Fukui, which literally translates to "Fortunate" in Japanese, is an area of Japan where many Dinosaur fossils have been found - more than 80% of dinosaur fossils in Japan have
been discovered in the Fukui Prefecture. The dinosaur image featured on the coin is a new species
of meat-eating dinosaur from 120 million years ago, and is appropriately named
"Fukuiraptor." In the background of the Fukuiraptor is Tojinbo Cliff, which is an extremely popular scenic piece of coastline on the Sea of Japan, and one of Japan's Natural Monuments.
