Yearning for currency (3)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'yearning' is the first definition.
(yen is a kind of yearning)

'currency' is the second definition.
(Japanese currency)

'for' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for yen that I've seen before include "change in East" , "foreign currency" , "Itch, craving" , "Japenese currency" , "Intense desire for a Japanese coin" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
