Notes: The sen is no longer used, but is equal to 1/100 of a yen. The Chinese yuan is basically the same currency name. Banknotes keyed with letters are in the background, and only partially visible.


Wikipedia has an article on the Japanese yen and there is more relevant information in the article on the Chinese yuan.

* This puzzle is numbered on the back so it is possible to work out where a piece goes.
