More info

The Heisei period is the current era in Japan. The Heisei period started on , 11 of January 1989 after the death of the Emperor Hirohito, when his son, Akihito, acceded to the throne as the 125th Emperor. In accordance with Japanese customs, Hirohito was posthumously renamed "Emperor Shōwa" on 31 January 1989. Thus, 1989 corresponds to Shōwa 64 until 7 January, and Heisei 1 from 8 January. To convert a Gregorian calendar year (1989–2019) to Heisei, 1989 needs to be subtracted from the year in question, then 1 added (e.g. 2019 in Heisei: 2019-1989+1=31; so 2019=Heisei 31). The Heisei period will likely end on 30 April 2019 (Heisei 31), the date on which Emperor Akihito is expected to abdicate the Chrysanthemum Throne.


The reverse of the coin depicts the wonderful and detailed image of a Phoenix with opened wings. The obverse of the coin depicts a beautiful floral design and the inscription: “日本国” – the issuing country, aside the japanese inscription for “HEISEI 31” – denoting the year of issue and the last year of the period.
