Very hard to read, but the style looks Song Dynasty Chinese, unless copied further south, perhaps.  I can't be categorical about this one.

Fourth coin is attributed to Vinh Lac (1414-1427).
Size is 23 mm.

This one took a really long stare. Turn the upper picture 90° clockwise and you'll see the characters appear. Coin in the name of emperor Che Tsung. Yuan-fu t'ung pao in cursive script (1098-1100). Remmelts 84.

I think it would rather be Vietnamese then Chinese, he should be about 25-26 mm, and on the back there is almost nothing on the surface.
Also they made a lot of Chinese like coins in Vietnam, they were smaller, thinner and mostly smooth on the back.
