I have two of these coins and being very new to the
community I thought I'd seek a bit of help please.

Here is what I have so far.

1870 Japan 1 Yen standard circulated coin.
Year 3 Emperor Meiji 1867-1912. Silver .999
Reeded edge.
Obverse:Dragon within beaded circle, legends above,
written value below.
Reverse:Sunburst crest within beaded circle and wreath,
chrysanthemum between two paulownia flowers above.
Type: 1 ? Going by symbol in frame.

Note# missing beads on inner circle.(obverse)

I have weighed them on kitchen scales and there is a
difference in weight, could this be from being in
circulation or possibly fakes?

I chance a guess at an AU scale?

Do they have Value?








Thanks

Maybe someone familiar with this series could comment. I'm seeing some red flags regarding their authenticity. Many signs of casting.
