BankingExchange Rate 

Japan Zone's historical overview of Japan's money, with pictures and information. Only the face side of the money is showing, but you can see the relative size differences. One fact from the page: from 1949 to 1971 the exchange rate was 360 yen to the dollar.

Good-sized pictures of both sides of each Japanese bill and coin. The kanji you see in the watermark portion of each bill is 'mihon', which means 'sample'.
