What are the words on the Japanese 500 Yen Showa coin?
I have a Y#90 Japanese Showa 500 yen coin and after doing some research, all I can find out about the text on this coin is that it has "legends" in the text. Can anyone give a translation of the text and/or the actual Japanese writing of it so I can look into translation of the individual lettering?
I'd appreciate it, thanks!
This is the coin made in 1986-1987 I believe.
The only thing that I can visually understand is Nippon-koku (日本国) but there are 3 other sections on it and I can't figure it out. Other details about the coin itself is the large flower on the front (chrysanthemum) and on the back is the Shishinden Palace.
I also understood the Kanji for yen so with a quick search, I found out the second of the 4 parts of text is Gohyaku-en (500 yen). Now there are other two phrases on it, I'm assuming they may have to do with either the Showa period or Hirohito.
You must mean this:
御在位六十年 : 60th. aniversary of the Showa Emperor's throne.
五百円 : 500 Yen
昭和六十一年: Showa 61th. (Japanese Year which means 1986)
