From Medhurst and Hepburn's romanizations, under the influence of earlier Portuguese romanizations, of Japanese 圓 (“round; round object; coin, esp. silver dollars”) as ye or yen, now 円 (en), from Chinese 銀圓 (yínyuán, “silver round object(s), esp. Mexican silver dollars”). Cognate with Chinese 元 (yuán, “monetary unit, esp. RMB”) and Korean 원 (won, “North or South Korean won”).
