Announcing the 3rd Coin In Japan's 47 Prefecture Series - Shimane!

Panda America is proud to be an official distributor of the Japan Mint for an exclusive program featuring Japan's numerous regions. This program focuses on the Japanese Prefectures. In Japan, the Prefectures are our version of States. Here in America we have 50 states. In Japan, they have 47 prefectures, which have a similar type of governing authority as our states. Legal Tender, 1000-Yen color silver proof coins for 47 prefectures will be issued from 2008 until 2016.  Each coin is 1 oz. of 99.9% silver, and comes housed in an attractive and colorful holder with pictures and information of the prefecture.   The program began last year with coins from Hokkaido and Kyoto, and continues in 2009 with the newest prefecture coin, Shimane!

the 2009 Japan Prefecture Shimane Coin

Shimane is situated on the Sea of Japan side of the country, in the South West, as shown on the map above.  It is the 2nd least populous prefecture in Japan, and is known throughout the country for being the home to Matsue Castle - a feudal castle originally built in the year 1607 and one of the few remaining medieval castles left in Japan. 

The coins of the prefectures will feature designs and images that are specific to that prefecture. The Shimane coin features Otoriosame-chogin, which was the silver currency of the 16th century, as well as Peony Flowers, which are prevalent in the Shimane Prefecture. The coins are colorized and have a strict mintage limit of only 100,000 pieces per prefecture. The reverse design features snow crystals, moon and cherry blossoms.  The color of the coin is white, green, yellow, red, and pink.  Diameter is 40 mm.  The edge of the coin features helical ridges.  These beautiful coins come directly from the Japan Mint, and are now available from official distributor Panda America.
