In 2020, Hokusai's Wave is featured in a series of gold and silver coins in a rectangular shape in reference to the original work.

Emblematic coins

Made between 1830 and 1833, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa", of its true name, is one of the most famous works of the Japanese artist Hokusai, a major figure in the Ukiyo-e artistic movement (17th-19th century). The wave is reproduced in its entirety on the face of the coins, accompanied by an interior view of the nave of the Grand Palais, which hosted a retrospective of Hokusai’s work in 2014.
