Beginning in 1959, Japan changed the design of the 100-yen coins it issued and shortly after, in 1967, it moved to a copper-nickel alloy like most of the rest of the world. However, for the years 1957 and 1958, these .600 fine silver coins briefly featured the design shown for this 1957-1958 Japan 100 Yen Silver Coin (Random Date). Each coin contains a total of 0.0926 troy ounce of pure silver and is legal tender with a face value of 100 Yen.

The obverse design shows what is generally understood to be a phoenix, a mythical bird that "rises from the ashes" and is reborn. (Some have suggested the image could be a peacock, as well; both birds have significance in Japanese culture and have appeared on coins.) Japanese characters surround the design, while a denticle pattern fills the outer rim.

The reverse features a brilliant sun centered within a stylized octagon created by lotus flowers. In addition to Japanese characters, the denomination "100 YEN" is inscribed at the bottom rim. The same repeating denticle pattern lines the outer rim.

While Japan has a decorated cultural history that traces back potentially as far as 2,500 years or more, the country was remarkably quick in adopting Western styles of government and industry without compromising its unique national character. This same blending of East and West comes through in the country's coinage, of which the 1957-1958 Japan 100 Yen Silver Coin (Random Date) is an excellent example. Its design is distinctly Japanese while many of its devices are squarely within more Western traditions. Add this silver coin with this special two-year design to your collection today!
