A deep dive on yen
No other currency in Asia is more heavily traded than the Japanese yen. In fact, it’s the 3rd most traded currency in the world.
The first minted coins in Japan appeared in 708, but by the 19th century Japan was using Spanish dollars. The yen (or “round object”) has been used as the central form of currency since the 1870s.
