¥142,593 for ¥10500 plus a free case is pretty reasonable.

I really hope they didn’t forget about the Olympics, have they? Gotta have commemorative coins for 2020.

20 2 grams of pure gold is only worth about 91,000 yen so every coin Nets the government about $500 profit

I will buy all.

That should just say 20 not 20 2

Surprised it took this long to be announced....oh right, had to wait until he actually BECAME the Emperor, be kind of crass to do it earlier.

There is always a mark up on commemorative coins, but that seems rather a large one!

They should also do silver at a reasonable cost ($15/oz in the US=Y1650).

I hope that these coins don't turn into the same fiasco that the Hirohito gold coins became.
