Mint Exhibition in Tsukuba
I should’ve posted this on Friday, but 造幣局INつくば(Mint Exhibition in Tsukuba) is currently being held at the Tsukuba Seibu. The exhibit is small, but you can still enjoy looking at various medals and coins, learn about coins, and you can touch real gold and silver bars!!
The exhibit details from Japan Mint website (English);
– February 2nd to 6th (10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.)
– February 7th (10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
– THE SEIBU DEPARTMENT STORE, 6th floor “Tsukuba Seibu Hall”,
“This fair shows the minting technology of coins and various operations of Japan Mint as well as the history of Japanese coins through exhibits and photo panels. We are looking forward to meeting you in Tsukuba.”
For those who are interested, commemorative coin sets and other items are available for sale. I bought sets of coins commemorating this even in Tsukuba, and I thought this set will be a perfect souvenir for friends and families or for those who are leaving Tsukuba! There are only 4000 sets available, so there’s a chance of Tsukuba coin sets being sold out for the day.
Admission is free.
