According to the statute this medal was awarded to those who were invited to Enthronement or performed official duties during Enthronement. Also prime minister office could award anybody at its own discretion.

The exact number is not known (as per today), but at least 16 000 were issued. Quite likely the total number is much higher .

It`s not very rare.

It was made by japan mint. You will find its marks at the rim.

Thank you!

I found that the medal stands on 4 of 5 on scarcity scale on this site  http://www.imperialjapanmedalsandbadges.com/manenthronment.html

Anyway, 200-300 euros is quite a high price.

"Quite a high price" for a what? That is the question.

For a medal that has 4 of 5 on scarcity scale? 

Rare manchukou medals gonna cost you thousands. 

By the way, what makes you think that a "fair price" for this "rarity" is 200 euros or even 300?

Without the box it will be more like 200 dollars or less.

For example this set of medals was sold for 300 dollars.

So, as mentioned previously, this medal not realy that rare and its not really that pricey,

I understand what you mean. For me 200-300 usd is a fine value for a medal. BTW I found it sold without box on one of the auctions for 600 usd.  I bought it for 15 euro.
