During Le-Loi's rebellion in 1417-1426, several coins were cast for the payment of his followers. They are all of diminutive size, and the copper employed varies in colour according to the provinces wherein the coins were cast.

Lê Lợi (c. 1384 – 1433) rebelled against the Chinese occupation in the end of 1417. In 1428 he proclaimed himself Emperor and founded the second Le Dynasty. Lê Lợi is among the most famous figures of Vietnamese history and one of its greatest heroes.
