NGC Registry – Featured Japan Set

Posted on 3/10/2020

This month’s featured set belongs to Star City Homer.

This month, we are excited to present the unique Japan 50 Sen, 1873-1900, Circulation Issue set.

It is obvious even to the most casual reader that Star City Homer has an avid interest in the numismatic history of these coins. With a fact-filled set description, this set is truly informative and provides relevant, reputable references for anyone who would like to learn more. Every coin in this set has comments not only about mintage but also about the distinct varieties and the artistic differences thereof. Furthermore, the gallery is a true pleasure for all to enjoy; it offers crisp and clear images of every coin.

With only 12 required slots to fill this set, one may think 100% completion is easily attained. Since 2015, Star City Homer has worked diligently to achieve a commendable 63% completion. As she herself mentions, mintage and lack of available population makes 100% completion a true challenge even for the savviest of collectors. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your unique collection, Star City Homer. We look forward to seeing what updates you have next!

Would you like your set to be chosen for a future feature article? 100% completion in a set type is not always feasible. Our team will also feature sets with thoughtful comments and images for all their coins. Perhaps we will choose someone whose set has a personal story behind it or some interesting historical facts. We are looking for those sets where someone has taken the time to make the set unique and a reflection of his/her personal collecting style. It may be your set! Stay tuned.
