japanese:The text on the coin is in Japanese as well as in Dutch. Each text is placed on its own ‘festive ribbon’, ensuring an equal position on the coin. 
As a counterpart to the Dutch portrait-side there is an abstract version of an old Japanese coin on the value-side: the coin with the hole in the middle and the circular typography.
