National monetary unit of Vietnam is the dong which consists from 10 haos or 100 sous. In circulation there are coins in nominal value 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 dongs.

In 1976 in Vietnam the first series of aluminium coins of denomination 1, 2 both 5 haos and 1 dong has been manufactured. However, because of the constant inflation, all these coins have been introduced from the circulation. In 1989 issue of memorable coins in nominal value of 10 dongs from different materials (copper, a brass, a Copper-Nickel, silver and gold) has taken place, but these coins have not gone to the circulation. On December, 17th, 2003 the Government bank of Vietnam has manufactured a new series of coins. The new coins which have been rapped out on a mint of Finland, were dignity in 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 dongs. Before, Vietnameses for buying of things in penny-in-the-slot machines interchanged paper moneys for special counters. Many inhabitants have expressed bewilderment seeing coins again after long years, and also there was a question of expediency of issue of a coin in 200 dongs.
