Japan will issue 100,000 ¥10,000 gold coins and 10 million ¥500 nickel-brass coins later this year to mark the 20th anniversary of Emperor Akihito’s enthronement, the Finance Ministry said Friday.

The pure-gold coin will depict a phoenix and the Imperial Palace’s Nijubashi double-arched bridge on the front and the chrysanthemum seal on the reverse. It will weigh 20 grams and measure 28 mm in diameter.
