Of course, the Inspector found a coin museum to enjoy!
Tokyo's National Currency Museum contains more than 160,000 currency items,
mostly from Japan and other Asian countries.
Do you know an American coin that has a museum on it?
The building on this commemorative coin is part of the Smithsonian Institution
in Washington, D.C. The Smithsonian's Museum of American History has a large
coin collection, including President Ulysses S. Grant's collection of old Japanese coins!
On his trip around the world, Japan was a favorite country of ex-President Grant. He gave the Emperor a horse, and the Emperor gave him a collection of Japanese gold coins.
America also has a whole museum just for money! That's the American Numismatic Association's Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Watch out, Inspector!
Time to say goodbye to Japan.
