The article uses some eminent coins to illustrate the life of Nguyen Phuc Anh, Vietnam's answer to Robert the Bruce and William of Orange. Going beyond that, the author, displaying deep scholarship, analyses the characters used on the coins and how they fit with Nguyen Phuc Anh's character and convictions.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
