Sakamoto Ryoma is one of the most famous historical figures in Kochi, and the 175th anniversary of his birth will be celebrated this year, in 2010. He made a great contribution to Japan's modernization at the end of the samurai period in Japan.
Katsurahama Beach is one of the most famous scenic spots in Kochi and also has long been known as a great location for Moon viewings.
Meantime, this silver coin will be the first ever coin among Japan's coinage that will bear a real person's effigy. So we are expecting that this will be one of the most precious and sought-after silver coins in Japan.
