The lowdown on the Japanese yen

In Japan, they pronounce it “en” in Japan, but we usually say “yen” in English – so you’ll be right either way. The yen, which means circle or round object, has been around since 1871.

The Japanese yen is known as one of the world’s hard currencies – that means it usually holds its value. People usually use cash in Japan, and that’s the only way you can pay in some places. That’s why it’s not unusual for people to carry a lot of cash around, also helped by the fact that Japan has one of the lowest crime rates in the world.

When it comes to coins, it’s much easier to tell what’s what than it is with some currencies – the one yen coin is made from aluminium, and it floats; the five and 50 yen coins have a hole in the middle, and the five yen coin is a shiny mix of zinc and copper that’s thought to be good luck. The 500 yen coin is one of the highest value coins around, so don’t confuse that one for small change.
