MOF Mints Silver Coins to Celebrate Expo 2025 Osaka

The Ministry of Finance (MOF) has announced plans to issue five types of commemorative silver coins to celebrate the upcoming Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan. These limited-edition coins will be released in three installments before the Expo begins, with the first issue being a stunning 1,000-yen silver coin.

The beautifully crafted coins will feature a face value of 1,000 yen, made of pure silver and weighing 31.1 grams. Only 50,000 coins will be issued, with an application period of about three weeks from August 8, 2023. Estimated shipment dates for the coins are around late November 2023, and they will be priced at 13,800 yen (including tax). It’s important to note that the manufacturing cost of these coins exceeds their face value, given the use of precious metals and special crafting technologies.
