Facts about the currency

  • The name ‘yen’ comes from the Japanese translation of ‘a round object’.
  • Between December 1941 and April 1949, the yen didn’t have a true exchange rate, as wartime inflation had reduced the yen to a fraction of its value before the war. The US occupation government fixed the value of the yen at ¥360 per US$1 in 1949 in an attempt to stabilise prices in the Japanese economy. This rate was abandoned in 1971.
  • While most nations display the Gregorian calendar year of mintage on their coins, yen coins display the year of the current emperor's reign.
