NGC - Coin of the Day: It's Mountain Day in Japan, so here's a gorgeous view of Mount Fuji to celebrate. This 1964 1,000 Yen was issued to celebrate the Summer Olympics that year in Tokyo. The Olympics are scheduled to return there next summer.

On a business trip to Singapore a number of years ago, I asked a local friend/co-worker if he could take me to a coin shop.

He did, and it was like no other coin shop I had ever been in. It was tiny, about the size of large walk-in closet, but it had a large inventory of raw coins in cardboard 2x2s lining each wall.

I had wanted to get one of the 1964 Japan Olympic commemorative coins so when I spotted what appeared to be a nice one "on the wall" I asked to see it. After finding it to be an attractive example with original BU surfaces, I negotiated a bit on the price and made the purchase. I enjoy having it in my collection!

I'll try to dig it out and post an image.

Coin shops in countries with limited land area like Hong Kong and Singapore are usually small cause rental is likely very high, you guys in the US are lucky, your shops and homes are much more spacious, more space for collectibles
