Cuts were the Mon, who had already been replaced between the yen, the same basic structure of the yen-denominated, was released in 1872, but the same was soon replaced with four new models in the Imperial Crest.
The new models, including the designation of Latin letters, a trend that has generally followed since, and the chrysanthemum, which has been imprinted on each of Japan until 1947, instead of the true face of the emperor.
