Amaterasu Omikami is translated from Japanese as “Great Divinity Illuminating Heaven”. In Japanese mythology, Amaterasu is a celestial sun goddess and an important Shinto deity.
She symbolizes fertility and makes plants grow, which give life not only to humans but also to the gods. As the guardian of the Japanese people, she is represented by the emblem of the rising sun on the Japanese flag.
The coin wonderfully depicts Amaterasu, who is holding the divine mirror in her hands. This mirror reflects the origin of the sun goddess. Additional decorations, such as an amber inset and discreet gilding give a perfect touch to the design of this coin.
This is a fantastic follow up issue after the very successful Amun-Ra.
