    Hi everyone!
    I hope you can help me. I'm getting married this July and wanted a bit of a Japanese theme. I was thinking of getting some 5 yen coins, as they are considered to bring good fortune, and having them sprinkled over the tables instead of confetti. Also, if we end up having some cherry blossom trees, I was thinking of hanging a few coins from them using red ribbon.
    Does anyone have any idea where I can buy a load of 5 yen coins?
    The bay is over charging as the coins are worth a few pennies each and currency exchange places only seem to deal in notes!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Do you know anybody over there who could get some and post them over? Postage would probably be high but not sure of another way to get them in the UK other than the bay

    I've looked on the bay and they are not overly priced

    Can you please post a link for where you have seen it on eBay? The only ones I've seen charge £1 per coin plus postage when they are actually worth about 3p each!

    You'll have to unrestrict your profile so Gf can post on your wall as links are not allowed on the forum (please read the forum rules).
