Why Order This GEM 2022 Japan 7-Piece Cherry Blossom Viewing Proof Set with Medal?
Many Mints around the world offer coin sets for collectors on a regular basis. Some sets are even issued regularly for special occasions. Japan’s Cherry Blossom Viewing coin sets are a great example of this. These sets are similar to their annual Mint sets, but they are offered to Cherry Blossom Viewing attendees at designated locations in Japan. Production of these sets is limited and only a tiny portion of them are released internationally.
- This 2022 Japan Cherry Blossom Viewing proof set is 7 pieces.
- The set includes 6 coins and 1 non-denominated medal.
- While 45,000 of these sets were issued, no more than 1,454 were allocated for sales over seas.
- This set is released for a major Japanese occasion.
