People will have opportunities to contemplate gold books and other royal gold objects of the Nguyen Dynasty from March 31 at the Viet Nam National Museum of History in Ha Noi. As many as 21 gold books and 10 royal objects of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802 – 1945) will be showcased for the first time, the Museum said on March 9. The books, made of such precious metals as gold or silver, were used to record significant royal events and rituals, such as coronation, enthronement, among others. They were compiled by the kings or high-level courtiers themselves. According to experts, the first gold book, measuring 24.5 cm and 13.5 cm was made by King Gia Long for his father in 1806. It consists of two thick cover pages and four thinner inside pages, which were subtly decorated with dragon-in-cloud patterns and weighed a total of 1.4 kg.
