The Japanese Yen (円, 圓, ¥) is the official currency of Japan.

After obtaining minting machinery from Hong Kong, the Japanese Meiji government decided to adopt a silver dollar coinage under the name of "yen" on May 10, 1871. The yen replaced Tokugawa coinage, a complex monetary system of the Edo period based on the Mon.

Yen as currency is made up of coins (¥1, ¥5, ¥10, ¥50, ¥100, ¥500) and banknotes (¥1000, ¥2000, ¥5000, ¥10,000).



  • The 1 yen coin is made out of 100% aluminum and can float on water if placed correctly.
  • The Yen is the third most traded currency in the foreign exchange market after the United States Dollar and the Euro.
  • Many Vending Machines in Japan no longer accept ¥500 coins due to counterfeiting issues. The exact reason is due to the 500 yen coin having a similar weight and the same diameter and metal alloy as the 500 South Korean won coin.
