KAMPUCHEA CAMBODIA COIN
The world did nothing while the Khmer Rouge government of Cambodia slaughtered over a million of their citizens in an effort to create a communist paradise in Cambodia. Finally in December 1978 the Vietnamese invaded Cambodia and chased out the Khmer Rouge. In 1979 a new government was created for Cambodia and the country was renamed Kampuchea. Only a single coin was issued for circulation while the country was called Kampuchea. It was this aluminum 5 cent piece dated 1979. At one time the coin sold for $20!

THE COINS OF LAOS
Laos is a landlocked nation bordering Vietnam. Because of its strategic location, it was pulled into the Vietnam war. Laos issued its first coins in 1952, when it was gaining independence from France. The coins were issued by the Kingdom of Laos and consist of 10, 20 and 50 Cent pieces struck in aluminum at the Paris Mint. All three coins were struck with a center hole to allow for the coins to be easily strung and carried. It appears the hole was an afterthought in the design process as it pierces the center of the design, rather than incorporating the hole into an artistic design. The communist-backed Pathet Lao immediately began a civil war when the country was to get its independence. The war continued until 1975 when the government surrendered after the fall of South Vietnam and Cambodia. It was not until 1980 that Laos issued its second set of coins for general circulation. These consisted of the 10, 20 and 50 Att, also struck in aluminum and issued by the Lao People's Democratic Republic. The designs of the 1980 coins feature the denomination in large numbers, with a small picture below. A woman holding grain is on the 10 Att, a farmer plowing is on the 20 Att and a fish is on the 50 Att. The reverse features the national arms, which include a hammer and sickle.

COINS OF VIETNAM
In 2003 Vietnam released their first coins in over a quarter of a century. An entire generation had grown up without ever using coins. The government finally bowed to the requests of merchants and citizens who wanted the convenience of coins for use in vending machines. There were reports that many children who had never seen a coin before tried to eat them thinking they were candy. The brass 5000 Dong coin pictures the Chua Mot Cot temple in Hanoi. The brass 2000 Dong shows a traditional high-roofed house. The brass 1000 Dong shows a temple in the ancient capital of Hue. The copper-nickel 500 and 200 Dong coins portray their denomination in large numerals. All five coins are dated 2003 and show the arms of Vietnam on the reverse.
