Hey! You can use en.numista.com to find out the dates of coins like these. If you find the numista page about this coin, you can scroll down and see the part that translates the characters under the number 10. Numista is also useful for logging coins.

Definitely a Japanese 10 Yen minted under Hirohito.

Not sure of the year. Counting past in Japanese is hard.

Krasue is a good resource for foreign coins. I picked mine up at a bargain store for under $10
