Again hard to make out, but the bottom character is "yuan" in Chinese and "nguyen" in Vietnamese, so the readings are doubtless correct.  I suspect the RH character is "chong"  in Chinese = heavy, rather than the usual "tong" = circulating.

(Btw, my Chinese transliterations may vary between Romanisation systems without using a reference book for consistency - no quibbles please!  I believe Wade-Giles used t'ung for the Pinyin tong, for instance, likewise ch'ung / chong for "heavy" (or was it chung / jong?)  You get the idea, anyway ...)

Thank you for your comment on this old thread. It makes it possible to catalog these wrong attributed coins.

I don't see enough of the characters to be sure, but judging from their outlines, I think this may be Remmelts 78, Shao-sheng yuan pao (1094-1097), emperor Tse Tsung.
