    In our garage I found this very cool Japanese 416 One Yen 900 coin.
    I know nothing about it.
    It is heavy and big, I have no idea of the year, a ruff translation of the symbols looks like maybe 1890 ? not sure at all.

    Has anyone seen one of these ?
    Thanks

      1 Yen Silver Fineness: 0.900
      Weight: 26.96g = 416 grains. Diameter: ?38.6 mm
      Three characters on the left: Dai Nippon Great Japan
      Top two characters from left to right: Emperor Mutsuhito (Meiji) reigned 1867-1912
      Reign years after Emperor`s name:
      Two horizontal lines for number 2
      + character stands for number 10
      Horizontal line stands for number 1
      Year calculated: 2 x 10+1 = 21
      Reign year is therefore 21
      1867 (first reign year) + 21 = 1888
      The character on far right (after the horizontal line for 1) is ``Nen`` meaning Year
