New Coins for the New Era

Japan has started minting coins stamped with the new Imperial Era - Reiwa, which is translated as beautiful harmoney. Japan has a special way of noting the years - by the year of the emperor. The new Emperor Naruhito ascended to the throne on May 1st of this year, which became year one of the Reiwa era.


I haven't seen any of these new coins in my change yet, but I will be looking for them.

That's interesting. We don't have much change to our money over here. President Obama had approved having Harriet Tubman put on the $20 bill, but our racist president put a stop to it. I thought that change was a great idea.

These are very pretty. I'm glad we don't do that with every administration -- it would cost a mint! I do wish we'd been able to get Harriet Tubman on the $20 before the administration changed. Maybe in another few years...

Coins in other countries are always interesting. Didn't Japan used to have a multi=sided coin (instead of round) that was considered good luck?
