About this topic


The Japanese yen ( or  en?) (sign¥codeJPY) is the official currency of Japan. It is the third most-traded currency in the foreign exchange market after United States dollar and the euro.[1][verification needed]It is also widely used as a reserve currency after the U.S. dollar, the euro and the pound sterling. As is common when counting in East Asia, large quantities of yen are often counted in multiples of 10,000 (man, 万) in the same way as values in Western countries are often quoted in thousands.
