This is an actual Japanese 100 yen coin that has been meticulously hand-cut with a jeweler's saw, and then set as a pin. Designed as a tie tack or lapel pin, but can be worn anywhere the post will fit.
The post is soldered, not glued, to the back of the coin for strength and durability. The deluxe clutch features a low-profile release that helps ensure that ties lie flat, while holding the pin more securely than other styles.
Cherry blossoms are known in Japan as “sakura” and are the national flower. During blooming season, there are celebrations across the country to view and contemplate their transient beauty. Cherry blossoms represent the impermanent nature of existence, symbolizing the eternal cycle of life and death.
