Japanese yen to pounds Sterling

One Japanese yen (¥) can theoretically be subdivided into 100 sen or 1000 rin, although these denominations are no longer in circulation due to their low values and the smallest unit of currency you're likely to come across is the ¥1 coin. There are three denominations of Japanese yen banknotes in frequent circulation: ¥1000, ¥5000 and ¥10000; and six coin denominations: ¥1, ¥5, ¥10, ¥50, ¥100 and ¥500.

The current series of Japanese yen banknotes in circulation is the 'E Series' which was introduced by the Bank of Japan in 2004. Each banknote in the series features a prominent figure from Japanese history or culture on the obverse side and iconic Japanese scenes, landmarks, or artistic motifs on the reverse side. For instance, the ¥1000 note features a portrait of Noguchi Hideyo; a renowned bacteriologist, along with a depiction of Mount Fuji and cherry blossoms on the reverse side. The ¥5000 note features a portrait of Fukuzawa Yukichi; a prominent educator, while the ¥10000 note features a portrait of Yukichi Fukuzawa; a famous author and intellectual, along with various scenes depicting cultural and natural elements of Japan.
