Yen Coin

what year is my japanese coin?

i bought some 5 yen coins, and the seller didnt know what year they where. i got them because my dad had some when he was younger, and they got stolen. i need a website or something to get when they was made, cause i know he will ask how old they are..

On your coins, it should say 昭和○○年 or 平成○○年. That's the year the coin was made. In the circles, there are numbers in kanji; from 1 to 10, kanji numbers are written as 一 二 三 四 五 六 七 八 九 十. For example, if one says 昭和五十六年, it means 56th year of showa period. For converting 昭和 (showa) and 平成 (heisei) into Gregorian form (like 2009), use the web page below.

Or they have table here though it's in Japanese.
