This collection comprises the stamp and
currency collection of Diana Do, a member of the Vietnamese American Coalition and
Vietnamese Language Committee in Irvine, California in the 1990s. The collection includes
three stamp albums of South Vietnamese stamps dating from circa 1950-1970s as well as more
contemporary Vietnamese paper currency. The stamps in particular capture and depict the
existence of South Vietnam, officially the "State of Vietnam" and later the "Republic of
Vietnam," which governed the southern half of Vietnam from 1949 until 1975.
