Exchange JPY to AUD

Selling Japanese Yen For Aussie Dollars

Back from Japan with left over currency?

You’re not the only one. Whether you’re a deliberate collector of foreign currency when you travel or it just somehow manages to hide itself in a pocket until you get home, now could be a good time to sell your foreign currency back to AUD.

Why sell leftover foreign currency?

Aussies love Japan. If the friendly people, amazing food, beautiful scenery and interesting history weren’t enough before, the Rugby World Cup is being held in Japan this year. All those Aussies means a lot of AUD-JPY currency conversions before you head over there, but what do you do with your Yen once you get home? You could store it in the sock drawer with your Euro and Pound from your last holiday 3 years ago, or you could sell it back to Travel Money Oz and put some of your hard earned back in your wallet?

Do you buy my Yen coins too?

Unfortunately we don’t buy back coins but there are a few cool things you can do with them instead of filling up a random glass with them or keeping them buried away.

Donate your leftover coins to charity:

We’re partnered with a UNICEF program called Small Change, Big Difference. This initiative collects unwanted foreign coins and uses them to protect and enrich the lives of children around the world.
Even a couple of coins can make a profound impact, allowing a child to survive and thrive. For example:

  • 1 UK penny = 1 day of clean drinking water.
  • 65 euro cents = a pencil and book for school.
  • 243 Thai baht = 20 doses of life-saving measles vaccine.


Donate your foreign coins to this program at any Travel Money Oz store and discover how your small change can make a big difference.

Do you know there are donation boxes at airports all over the world that collect your spare foreign coins and donate them to worthy charities? You probably don’t — according to’s research, less than 5 per cent of Australian travellers actually use them.
Airlines also accept leftover change on board and donate them to good causes.
