Yen and Now

Made in Japan from recycled Japanese currency, the Daruma bank is based on popular Japanese wish dolls modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism. Initially, the eyes are white, and you color in the right eye as you make a wish (or start saving). When your wish comes true or you reach your savings goal, color in the left eye.

This bank is made up of approximately 80 bills, a combination of 1,000, 2,000, 5,000 and 10,000 yen bills. Due to the range of colors of the Japanese bills, each product may be slightly different in color, featuring hues of green, yellow, and blue. Made in Japan.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
