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.

My experience of Travelex

The Travelex credit card I purchased worked perfectly and so was highly convenient. I found that topping it up via the Travlex website was straightforward. I appreciate a good product and good service which made my travel considerably less stressful - once I had tried the card and fohnd it worked!

The idea of ordering money online was quite easy but I did not receive a notification when my cash was ready to collect and I had to follow up. The cash had bee delivered 2 days earlier than original planned which meant my post office was about to send it back. Thankfully they hadn't sent it back or else that could have caused major inconvenience when our trip is only a few days away
