Between 1961 and 1963 more than 300 counterfeit ¥1,000 notes were found to be circulating in Japan, mainly in the eastern region. Compared to previous examples of forgery, these notes had been printed with great skill. The image on the front right hand side of the ¥1,000 note then in circulation was that of Prince Shotoku ( 574-622 AD), one of the greatest figures of Japanese religious history. In order to prevent a recurrence of forgery, a new ¥1,000 note was issued (S-2-3-2) and the previous note – together with the forgeries – went out of circulation.
