The Chinese and
Vietnamese Coin Collection includes six cards mounted with coins. Four cards are labeled
"Chinese Moneys" and are indicated as coming from the "Dynasty Chou," more commonly referred
to as the Zhou dynasty. These coins are labeled as "Press Money (BC 620-560)," "Lacca Pu (BC
560)," "Hu Money (BC 320)," "Cikoty Money (BC 860)," "Scimitar Money (BC 580)," "Acravins
Money (BC 255-206)," and "Lucky Coin (BC 680-280)." Two cards labeled "Vietnamese Coins
Collection" include notes indicating the coins were minted during the reign of Emperors
Thiệu Trị (1841-1847), Hàm Nghi (1884-1885), Tự Đức (1847-1883), and Thành Thái (1889-1907).
The Chinese coins appear to be examples of spade and knife money, while the Vietnamese coins
are all round.
