Should this article, and the other ones on Japanese currency units, be combined into a single article, with sections for each, and a redirect from each individual one to the appropriate section? I ask this now because it is an example of what will be a very frequent occurrence, as a great many WP articles are written this way. I think the reader is better served by having them together--its simpler than following the hyperlinks.

Yes! By all means! This would also enhance the chance that the more encompassing article would be written by a person who understand this... All the mini-articles for various coins leave the impression of being studiously copied, not written by someone who actually understand this. This is especially important with ancient coinage, uniting aureus, denarius, solidus, etc. Ori Redler 01:43, 19 November 2006 (CST)
