You can see if your bank will do a currency exchange to get the coins. If not, you can look on yahoo auctions for older coins: https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/category/list/2084036913/
Tried today on all biggest excanges from my city and also called a friend worker from a bank and he told me to try on other bank ... i found nothing in my today searchings ! Anyway , thank you vert very much for suggestion (i didnt think to search on auctions) ! Now lets see if we can send them to Romania ✌🏻(coins are on the banned , they are considersted prohibited and are list of items witch cant be shipped)

If that's the case, I'd hit up some A-P users living in Japan to see if they can send the coins.

Something to keep in mind, older coins with higher solver content may have different weights... I have a handful like this that my Vewlix won't take.

@AlxUnderBase — I had the local currency exchange place put up a sign saying they’ll buy 100 yen coins. After a few months I had a couple of ashtrays full.

You might have luck with that, but given restricted travel I assume there’d be very minimal tourists back from Nippon.

Hope some Japanese members here will help you out. I recommend using the 100 yen coins over modifying the coin mech. I’ve done both and never got it 100% right for tokens when I modified a mech myself.

That’s a great idea! Really cool of them to do that for you.

The sign was pretty confronting, it was just a big sheet of paper with a 100 yen coin on it and Japanese saying they'd buy the coins.

I originally only wanted an ashtray full but I forgot to tell them to take down the sign. I walked past a month later, realised, and bought the rest they'd saved up just on the strength they did that for me.

Restored my faith in humanity for a minute. There's definitely some cool and helpful people left in this world still -- just fewer and farer between these days, compared to the past.

Tried on majority biggest exchanges from my city and majority workers treat me as tired and frustrated peoples when i asked about what i want to buy !
I called even on BNR (the national bank of romania - they make the romanian money) ... same answers ...
Majority of them told me : "we not allowed coins" , "we don't have" , "we didn't have" , "we didnt take" ... very hostile treatment and workers treat me not nicely on exchanges shops , very sadly moments for me. they act like makes to feel you guilty of something when you ask them for something they can't offer you :(
