This updated catalog describes the known legal tender coins and paper money for "North" Viet Nam from February 3, 1946 to
April 24, 1978. Besides legal tender pieces, there are many other financial instruments. There are over 450 pieces and over 200 overstamps
and overprints listed. There are pieces in this catalog which have never been illustrated and/or cataloged in any other reference. Besides
the detailed information about most of the pieces, there is also historical background information. All values are in US Dollars. There are
still limited quantities of the first edition available for those interested in a copy for their libraries.
Author Howard Daniel adds:
The cover image is a medal produced for the opening of the Hanoi Mint in 1945. I found it in a junkbox in Hanoi sometime in the
1990's. So far, it is unique. I am receiving many emails from Vietnamese asking me if I would sell it and I have replied in the
The usual time for approval of my books being printed in Viet Nam is about two months but this one took fourteen months! I have only
information in it that was published or available in Viet Nam but I put in a detailed time line of decrees and other information that
does not always make them look good, so they wanted me to change it. I rewrote several areas but did not delete anything. The third group
of censors finally approved it.
My next catalog will be the third edition of French Southeast Asia Coins & Currency, which should be published early next year.
It will have MANY corrections and additions not only to my previous editions but also to the major catalogs published in France. As I fix
or add something, I do contact the French numismatists interested in it and let them know about it.
My major retailer is Wizard Coin Supply and they have been doing a great job in showing and describing my books on their website.
