Japanese Yen Exchange Rate History Graphs

Whether you're buying or selling Japanese Yens it's always useful to see how the Japanese Yen rate has changed over time so you can put the current rate into context and decide if now is a good time to place your order. Unfortunately most historical Japanese Yen graphs are not based on actual high street data but instead show the inflated interbank rates which are not available to the general public. Our historical Japanese Yen graphs are different because we plot the actual exchange rates that Japanese Yens can be bought or sold at in the UK and are indicative of what you could have received if you ordered on the day.

We show two sets of data below. The first is the historical rate for Japanese Yen travel money which is the rate you would receive if you bought Japanese Yens. The second is the historical Japanese Yen buy back rate which is the rate you would receive if you sold Japanese Yens.
