Gold Coins of Annam
Was a feudal monarchy between 1428 and 1878 in the area which is today in the central region of Vietnam. Annam occasionally issued coins during that period. The area was occupied by the French in 1879 and Annam became part of French Indo-China in 1887. When the Communist Vietminh defeated France in 1954, the area was divided between North Vietnam and South Vietnam.
