- Hello, I’m not certain if this falls under “off topic” or mot, but I'm going to ask it anyhow. On this site in Toda’s Annam and its minor currency there are multiple references to large denomination coins such as the larger Canh Hung Thong Bao, Minh Mang Thong Bao, Tu Duc Thong Bao, and Tu Duc Bao Sao coins. As a collector of general Asian van coins I know that the Korean Thuong Binh Thong Bao of 100 van, the Japanese Thien Bao Thong Bao, and a Chinese 100 van coin during the Thai Binh rebellion all caused massive inflations and with the exception of the Japanese coin were withdrawn from the market almost immediately, is there any information on if the larger Tu Duc Thong Bao and Tu Duc Bao Sao coins caused similar inflation in Dai-Nam? And did these circulate with the same exchange rates (of 500/600 Sapèque) per French Indo-Chinese piastre?
I would think that by the fact that on eBay a Tu Duc Bao Sao rarely goes below € 100,- while Japanese Thien Bao Thong Bao coins can easily be found for € 3,50 (with fakes often being more expensive than genuine coins!) that they were rare.
