The government said Tuesday it will issue an 80 yen commemorative stamp on Sept. 7 celebrating the 50th anniversary of Japan’s signing of the San Francisco Peace Treaty.

The stamp will include images of the San Francisco Opera House, where the treaty was signed, and Japanese autumn flowers, the Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts and Telecommunications said.

The ministry said it plans to sell 10 million of the stamps.

Japan signed the San Francisco Peace Treaty on Sept. 8, 1951, with 48 Allied nations, including the United States, and restored full sovereignty.
