    Here's another album for Japanese coins at eBay.
    I think this one dates from around the time of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
    Never saw this one before, either!

    Are there any Japanese coin albums for a date series?

    I've seen some, but I don't hunt them. That said I MAY have one tucked on a shelf somewhere. If I find it I'll post it for you.

    I posted mine before. I've updated lots of the coins in this album, btw.
    The ones I personally found hard to find in very nice gem condition are the 1955, 1960, 1961, and 1969 One-Yen; 1949 (two types), 1950, 1951, 1952, 1955, 1957, 1960, 1961, 1962 Five-Yen; 1955, 1957, 1958 10-Yen; and 1960 50-Yen.

    You remind me to revisit the idea of manufacturing such albums again mlov43...

    Well, from what people here are saying, the U.S. Dansco album company is starting to make albums again, but mostly for the U.S. collector market.

    I don't know if they will make that Japan album from the 1960s again. I doubt it.

    A million years ago (okay, it was 2007) Intercept about doing an album to do an updated type set album (a la the Dansco 7460). Here is a cut/paste email response from the time I contacted them. My (old) email redacted of course :D

    The minimum on a custom album would be 5000 pieces. Any fewer in quantity and the upcharges would be too high. There are also artwork and die charges that go along with this depending on how difficult the pages are to design and can run anywhere from 1000$ US to 5000$ with freight charges being extra – about $1500. A six page album in a custom format would cost you about 20$ (ballpark) US plus the additional charges.

    We just designed a US Type Album that took about a year to complete due to confirming coin sizes, printing and lead times to produce. The artwork alone took about 2 months to complete due to every coin on every page being different, which it seems would be the case with the Japanese Type as well. The album has still not been released as we are trying to confirm 3 coin sizes that the factory cannot seem to get right.

    We have affiliates in Japan for our industrial products and I am going to contact them to see if they have had inquiries about coin albums. If they have, I will let you know. Again, thank you for your interest in our products and we will notify you via email when any new product is available.

    So I never did that. I did end up making a pseudo-7460 in an NGC custom set. Sadly they have never updated their custom sets to match their official sets. It could look much nicer. On the other hand it's a nice way to put in coins too nice to crack. Eventually I did a website but I've been neglecting it.

    Here is the 1966 version of the above Dansco 7460 album that @Stork shared.

    To update this album to the current date, they'd likely have to add a hole for the 500-Yen, holes for the Heisei and Reiwa examples, and maybe an entire page for some commemorative coin examples.

    I have to update mine. I haven't updated it for a while.

    I managed to get the latest common 500 yen bimetallic coin as well as a set of Reiwa coins.

    More to the list... I think the album has to be split into two as it would be too thick

    Cool ones! As I'm getting more interested in going back earlier than the monetary reform type coins these types of albums are getting more and more interesting.

    And if anyone is interested there is a Dansco 7460 up on eBay, seller has left a couple coins in it including the Olympic ones (silver). He's using a higher starting price, but I've seen these sell that much. Easily.
