The yen (円, en; Symbol: ¥) is one of the currencies used on Earth. The yen only seems to be used in the eastern area of the world: primarily the area in and around the Eastern Capital. Prior to the start of the series, the Zeni—the primary currency used on Earth—was worth 1.5 less than the yen. By the time the series began, however, the yen had decreased in value, making the two currencies roughly equivalent.
- The yen is the official currency of Japan.
