The 178 items in the collection date from 1969 to 1997 and many are in nearly pristine condition.

The collection will be sold at two auctions co-organized by London-based Spink and Taisei Coins Corporation, to be held November 26, 2017, and April 29, 2018, during the Tokyo International Coin Convention in Tokyo.
