My third and final coin for identification.
The diameter is 24.85mm and weighs just under 5.9 grams (5.8967).
It has a reeded edge.

Thank you.

Paul.

I don't believe it's Japanese but rather from Taiwan
I think it's a 1 yuan
but I'm not sure
someone with way more info will chime in soon

@DR, first welcome to CCF. Second, here is the numista link to your Taiwanese Dollar:

Thank you for the welcome and all for your help on this. It has had me stumped for quite a while, specially as I was looking under Japanese coins in Numista et al. I have been in the deep end the last few weeks identifying and recording the 900+ coins I have inherited (twenty years ago!) and I have learned a great deal. I just needed some experienced eyes to name these last coins, thanks again.

Paul.

I don't like the appearance of this coin, it has the looks of a cast coin.
