Ogasawara Islands
The Bonin Islands, also known as the Ogasawara Islands (小笠原群島 Ogasawara Guntō), are an archipelago of over 30 subtropical and tropical islands, some 1,000 kilometres (540 nmi; 620 mi) directly south of Tokyo, Japan. The name “Bonin Islands” comes from the Japanese word bunin (an archaic reading of 無人 mujin), meaning “no people” or “uninhabited”. The only inhabited islands of the group are Chichijima (父島), the seat of the municipal government, and Hahajima (母島), which includes Ogasawara Village. Ogasawara Municipality (mura) and Ogasawara Subprefecture take their names from the Ogasawara Group. Ogasawara Archipelago (小笠原諸島 Ogasawara shotō) is also used as a wider collective term that includes other islands in Ogasawara Municipality, such as the Volcano Islands, along with other small, uninhabited and isolated islands. Geographically speaking, all of these islands are part of the Nanpō Islands.


The reverse of the coin consists of Minamijima Island’s Ogiike Pond representing symbolic scenery of the Ogasawara Islands, and Hahajimameguro and Muninhimetsubaki that are species native to the Ogasawara Islands. On top of the reverse, the inscriptions: “日本国” – the issuing country. The obverse of the coin depicts a Humpback whale, Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin and Green turtle that live in waters close to the Ogasawara Islands, surrounded the Japanese inscriptions.
