Japan 100 Yen 1967 to 1988 | japan 100 yen nickel style japanesse japanize japenese japanese japanise flower nichol nickle nickels stylized nikel china character nichel letter 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 xe.com 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.
