Will Vietnam have circulation coins soon?
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:19:52 AM »
See

https://english.thesaigontimes.vn/65400/central-bank-to-stop-printing-small-currency-notes-for-tet.html

Not printing smaller notes during Tet means that life of smaller notes has become very short and thus they have lost viability.

Will this lead to issue of new denomination circulation coins?
Last series was issued in 2003.

As the article linked to put it:

This is the seventh consecutive year that the central bank has adopted this stance.

Therefore, this is non-news, no change.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Have given up on present series.
Have identified the reason for failure ( although personally, I do not agree with that)

Will they make another attempt is the most important question.
