#246 1 Yen Coin

1 yen is an interesting coin.

Really lightweight and thin because it’s made from aluminium.

It can even float on water.

It also costs more to produce than it’s worth – around 2 yen per coin.

They also weight exactly 1g.

The back shows a young tree growing and sprouting and the front is a simple 1.
