These Vietnamese "cash" coins date back to the reign of Emperor Lê Nhân Tông, who ruled from 1443 to 1459 CE. Taking the throne at just 2 years old after the death of his father, the young emperors reign was cut short when he was killed by his brother in a successful coup attempt.
Copper coins produced in Vietnam were very similar to Ming dynasty Chinese cash coins of the same period. Historically Vietnamese coins were more crudely made, but during the Lê dynasty the quality of these coins improved to essentially match their Chinese counterparts.
