Prior to 1847, no dates are found on coins of Cambodia. It is estimated that this 2 PE coin was minted sometime between 1650 and 1850. Beginning in the 16th century, Cambodian coins began to appear that were all small, round, one-sided coins with images of plants and animals. They were crudely hand struck in silver, copper, or billion (low grade silver). This 2 PE coin would make unique and wonderful addition to the collection of world coins.
