Japanese yen (JPY) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Japanese yen chart plots the actual Japanese yen buyback rates offered by our panel of UK currency providers at the end of each day, so you can see the historical performance of the Japanese yen against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Japanese yen to pound exchange rate, not the Japanese yen buyback rate advertised in our Japanese yen buyback comparisons. Both rates are the same, but the buyback rate is displayed in a different format due to the way UK currency suppliers advertise their buyback rates. Learn more
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Japanese yen against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Japanese yen buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Japanese yen to pound exchange rate, and the Japanese yen buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Japanese yen to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Japanese yen in British pounds. For example, a Japanese yen to pound rate of 0.0067 means one Japanese yen is worth 0.0067 pounds.
In contrast, the Japanese yen buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Japanese yen you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Japanese yen buyback rate of 150 means you'd have to exchange 150 Japanese yen to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Japanese yen buyback rate instead of the Japanese yen to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Japanese yen comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Japanese yen to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Japanese yen buyback rate into the actual Japanese yen to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Japanese yen buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 150 = 0.0067.
