Estimated market value:
This is Japan's highest Order. It is rarely conferred to anyone outside of the Royal Family and Heads of State. It can only be awarded to men, and it can be conferred posthumously.
The Collar was instituted on January 4, 1888. It is only worn by the reigning Emperor, and it is awarded for foreign monarchs as a courtesy. Prior to 1947, the Collar was also awarded to Marshals, Cabinet Ministers, and senior members of the Royal Family.
