Japan 100 Yen  1967 to 1988
Japan 100 Yen 1967 to 1988

Just about all modern Japanese coins are really cool. Their designs are artistic and very interesting. Flowers are a recurring theme.

You can figure the Gregorian date on these coins by adding 1925 to the numeral shown. The coin in our picture is dated 1968 (1925 + 43).

These coins are made of copper nickel and are worth face value (100 yen in Japan). Use a web site such as to convert currency values.

Should you have a specimen that is absolutely, fully uncirculated, a collector would probably pay a few US dollars over face value to add it to his or her collection.

The year 42 and year 44 dates are slightly less common when fully uncirculated. Such a coin catalogs for about $8.

be sure to refer to our 'Important Terminology' page on the top left to interpret what 'catalog value' really means.
