How much would a newspaper cost in yen?
about 500 yen
If you are asking what the value of a yen in 1930 is compared to today, about 659 yen. So something that cost 1 yen in 1930 would cost 659 yen today, or about $7.60 US. If you are looking for the collector's value of the actual printed note today, 5 and 10 yen notes range from $3 for a well used one to about $50 for a perfect, never circulated or folded one.
Well, JPY | yen 1 (Japanese yen) | 1.12cent (US cents) One JPY Yen is equal to 1.12 US cents. I can't find an accurate price on the internet in such short notice, but let's just say $3.50, just for fun. $3.50/.0112 = 312.50 Yen. Of course, the price could be 700 Yen IN JAPAN simply because they charge more on a relative basis.
