Famed Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai’s “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” serves as the inspiration for Scottsdale Mint’s latest legal tender bullion proof-like BU and color commemorative proof coin releases. Collectors will instantly recognize Scottsdale’s effort in creating legal tender bullion and Color Commemorative Proof coins that capture the essence of Hokusai’s internationally renowned “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” color woodblock art piece first created in the 1830’s. Fans of the artist will not be disappointed with Scottsdale’s attention to detail as both coins, on closer inspection, reveal a depiction of famed Mount Fuji in the background.
