A deep dive on Yen

No other currency in Asia is more heavily traded than the Japanese Yen and it’s the 3rd most traded currency in the world.

The first minted coins in Japan appeared in 708 but by the 19th century Japan was using Spanish Dollars. The Yen (or “round object”) has been used as the central form of currency since the 1870’s.

More info about Yen

The most commonly used bills for Japanese Yen are the ¥1,000, ¥5,000 and ¥10,000 notes. The most commonly used coins are the ¥10, ¥50, ¥100, ¥500 but you will also sometimes receive ¥1 and ¥5 as change.

The rate could be better

The rate could be better, but most exchanges in Australia don’t have that good rates. It was nice to be able to pick it up at an Australia Post.
