This is a very dark coin that I got as a penny. On closer look it was actually a 10 yen coin from Japan. Not rare but seldom seen in my change I believe because the distance from here to Japan makes travel something only the wealthier population enjoys.
Emperor Hirohito whose coinage bears the Shōwa era symbols. Upon the emperor's death it will change again starting from year 1 and counting up until death.
Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Yen / Japan
Year: 1990 (Year 2)
Value: $0.15 in Extra-Fine
Exchange rate is also about $0.09.
Do you have a
coin from Japan and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do
my best to find out the price and history for you.
