How to read dates on modern Japanese coins

Alpha Centauri Vacations

If you’re a big fucking weeb like me, chances are that you know at least enough Japanese to decipher the date on a Japanese coin. If you have the good fortune to not be such a person and lack any knowledge of the language but you still have an interest in Japanese coins, you face a problem – namely the fact that most Japanese coins bear not Gregorian-calendar years but rather traditional dates written in kanji, the Japanese versions of Chinese characters of which there are over three thousand. Presents a real challenge for the beginner, does it not? Thankfully, out of all these characters, you only need to know 19 of them to read dates on modern Japanese coins.

The traditional Japanese dating system divides all time into eras, each of which encompasses the reign of an emperor whose regnal name is given to the era. So, for example…

Hyperinflation banknotes of Germany

Alpha Centauri Vacations

Paper money is a strange concept when you really think about it. As many have pointed out before me, it has no intrinsic value other than that of the matetial it’s printed on. Its only true value stems from the value we give it when we accept it for goods and services. Even stranger, paper money is a theoretically limitless good. Consequently, some foolish – or desperate – governments have decided to try to stave off economic collapse by printing massive amounts of money. More money, more wealth! Right?

Well, no. Not really. Paper money works like any other good in the sense that the more there is of it, the less it’s worth. In the early 1920s, the government of Weimar Republic Germany learned this lesson all too well. The loss of resources after their defeat in World War I and the reparation payments that followed required Berlin to…

Banknotes of North Korea

Alpha Centauri Vacations

Or of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) as Kim and his government would prefer you call it. This is quite a relevant topic today in my country, whose leader is heading to a summit with Young General/Great Commander/Sex God Kim Jong Un in Singapore. The pair seem to be made for each other – both egotistical and out of touch with reality.  Though I wonder about Kim.  He seems less actually insane than he lets on.

Despite the fact that North Korea is the worker’s socialist paradise, they still print money. The DPRK won naturally is not taken on international currency exchanges, but large amounts of DPRK currency is available for sale on eBay and at coin shows.  This currency is technically worthless outside North Korea, but some collectors (like me) feel it has some value because of its interesting designs.  Like the above 1 won note from…

Novelty banknotes

Alpha Centauri Vacations

Some bills and notes you’ll find online and at coin shows were never intended to be legal tender anywhere, or at least not on this plane of existence. These novelty banknotes are printed by non-governmental groups and individuals for various reasons – as souvenirs, as political propaganda, even as a method of proselytizing.

Eight carps?

Yes, this is a banknote valued at eight carps. Is it a coupon for eight carps, actual fish you can get at a market?

I scoured the internet for information about this note, who made it, why they made it. I have come up with nothing except its national origin (Bulgaria.)

The carps on this note and the legend on the back seem to refer to the carp jumping over the Dragon Gate, an old Chinese myth that claims the carp that can swim upstream and jump the last cataract over a legendary mountain can…

Money talks: Imperial German 100 Mark note (1908)

Alpha Centauri Vacations

Imperial German 100 mark note front

I promise, I’ll write about something other than German banknotes in this series at some point – I just have so damn many of them, and I find them among the most interesting in terms of design.  Today we’re taking a look at a 1908 100 Mark note printed in Berlin by the Reich Bank Directory.  The imperial Mark was quite a strong currency up until the middle of World War I, when its value started to decline ahead of a total collapse in the early 20s that we talked about last post.  This particular note is very impressive, both in size and design: it’s a lot bigger than any modern banknote I’ve ever handled, and I love the intricate design on both the obverse and reverse of the note.

I especially like the reverse design, pictured below, with two women holding a portrait of Germania, the personification of the…
