100 Yen Coin

Posted on

The Japan 100 yen, which was released in 1953, is in uncirculated condition. Its obverse side displays the countrys first political party leader Itagaki Taisuke. The back of the banknote is the majestic National Diet building which is the heart of political affairs in Japan. These coins commemorate the Expo 75 World's Fair held on the island of Okinawa in Japan from July 20, 1975 to January 18, 1976. They are made of copper nickel and are worth 100 yen. According to xe.com, 100 yen is equivalent to about 85 US cents, but that could change tomorrow. 100 yen 1972 copper-nickel Diameter 30.0 mm.
