NEW BOOK: HISTORY OF VIET NAM MONEY

Howard A. Daniel III submitted this review of a new book on Vietnam's money. Thanks! -Editor

VietNamHa Lich Su Tien Te Viet Nam - 2013 First Edition, self-published,
Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam
By Ha Van Tho (in Vietnamese)
8.5 x 11, 399 Pages, leather-like hardbound, full color

"Ho's book started with just illustrating and describing his collection but then he decided to greatly expand it with pieces from other collections and references. There are a few previously unpublished pieces. If you collect Vietnamese; French colonial; and Japan, Chinese, South Korea, Thailand and US military pieces used in Viet Nam, this will be a useful reference to you."

There is a representative collection of Imperial Viet Nam cash-style coins

A type set of French colonial coins and bank notes

A type set of Republic of Viet Nam, Democratic Republic of Viet Nam, and Socialist Republic of Viet Nam coins and notes

Some Republic of Viet Nam pattern notes, and one unissued Socialist Republic of Viet Nam note

Some non-circulating legal tender (NCLT) coins of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam.

Some "trade dollar" coins and French colonial silver rounds

Some Socialist Republic of Viet Nam foreign exchange certificates, high denomination bank checks, and bonds

Some United States military club tokens from the Vietnam War era.

United States, Japan, Chinese, South Korean, and Thailand military related currency from WWII to the Vietnam War era

There are also pictures of Tho in front of many places in Viet Nam which are on many of the pieces.

Tho is a collector of pieces with "100" on them, and he will print only 100 copies of this reference.

Howard is seeking confirmed buyers for the author. Only the number ordered will be imported to a bookseller in the USA. The cost of this reference in Viet Nam is about US $25. Counting shipping and customs charges, the cost in the USA will be US $50 plus mailing from the West Coast. Send an email to Howard at HADaniel3@msn.com if you have questions and/or want to order this reference. After they arrive in the USA, an invoice will be sent to each buyer. Do NOT send money to Howard. -Editor
