Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a multifunction template. At its simplest, it adds the currency mark "¥", as recommended by MOS:CURRENCY for many situations. The template can also link to the Japanese yen article and can even calculate inflation. See warnings below.

Usage[change source]

  • {{¥|value}}
  • {{JPY|value}}
  • {{Yen|value}}


  • {{¥}}¥
  • {{¥|123.45}}¥123.45

Link[change source]

The parameter |link=yes may be used to link ¥ to the article Japanese yen. This is turned off by default, but may be appropriate for the first occurrence of the term in an article.


  • {{¥|123.45|link=yes}}¥123.45

Inflation calculation[change source]

The template supports inflation calculation, by way of {{Inflation}}. If the second parameter is used, to specify a year, and this year is within a certain range of available inflation data (specifically, if 1946 ≤ year < 2013), the equivalent value represented in 2013 yen will be calculated in parentheses. However, this function should only be used in appropriate situations.

  • {{¥|value|year}}
  • {{¥|value|year|round=round|about=yes}}


  • {{¥|100|1945}}¥100
  • {{¥|100|1946}}¥100 (equivalent to ¥3,837 in 2013)
  • {{¥|100|1966}}¥100 (equivalent to ¥380.28 in 2013)
  • {{¥|100|1966|link=yes}}¥100 (equivalent to ¥380.28 in 2013)
  • {{¥|100|2012}}¥100 (equivalent to ¥100.30 in 2013)
  • {{¥|100|2013}}¥100
  • {{¥|100|2021}}¥100
  • {{¥|100|2022}}¥100

Additional parameter |about=yes will cause the template to calculate to the nearest yen (instead of the nearest sen or rin), and prefix the calculated value with "about". The rounding can be fine-tuned further by using |round=integer. These parameters may be combined.


  • {{¥|10|1966}}¥10 (equivalent to ¥38.03 in 2013)
  • {{¥|10|1966|round=0}}¥10 (equivalent to ¥38 in 2013)
  • {{¥|10|1966|about=yes}}¥10 (equivalent to about ¥38 in 2013)
  • {{¥|1000|1966|round=2}}¥1,000 (equivalent to ¥3,802.85 in 2013)
  • {{¥|1000|1966|round=-2}}¥1,000 (equivalent to ¥3,800 in 2013)
  • {{¥|1000|1966|round=-2|about=yes}}¥1,000 (equivalent to about ¥3,800 in 2013)
