"The central province of Quang Tri’s museum is to receive 34kg of ancient coins from a local resident in Dong Ha Town.
The ancient coins were unearthed by a man in Ha Tay village while he was scavenging for rubble iron and steel left from war. Nguyen Du Dac bought the ancient coins and donated them to the Quang Tri Museum.
The coins are contained in a glazed terra-cotta jar and come from several of China’s dynastic periods; there are also some rare Vietnamese coins cast between 960 and 1454." - Translated from a Vietnamese article at VietnamNet.vn
