Overse design: Mt. Koya and Danjo Garan
The Koya mountain founded in 816 by the Japanese Monk Kobo Daishi (Kukai), celebrates the 1200th anniversary of its foundation in 2015. In 2014 it was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as one of the Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range.
Common reverse design: Snow crystals, moon and cherry blossoms
Latent image technology is applied to the center of the largest snow crystal to make letters of "47" representing the number of prefectures in Japan, and "60" representing the 60th Anniversary of Enforcement of the Local Autonomy Law appear alternately when viewed from different angles.
