Vietnam 5 Dong 1966 to 1971
These coins are difficult to find in good condition. The one in our picture has a stain on the '5 Dong' side and that lowers value substantially. These are modern coins made of copper-nickel (1966 coins) and steel (1971 coins), so their prices are very low.
worn: less than $1 US dollar catalog value

Requester description: 1966 Front:Viet-nam Cong-Hoa around the top sides, 5 in the middle and DONG under the (5) \ Back:NGAN-HANG QUOC-GIA VIET-NAM, rice stalks in the middle, 1966 on the very bottom. This coin is NOT round. The edges are wavy all the way around, as if a flower. Has (8) bulging 'petals' (I dont know any other way of describing this coin).
