SBV Governor Nguyen Thi Hong said the book on Viet Nam’s currency is the first-ever scientific work on the birth, characteristics, material, and socio-economic meaning of the currency in different historical periods spanning a thousand years.

Since 1945 especially, the currency can be viewed as an important historical source reflecting the struggle for national independence and reunification and the building of socialism under the leadership of the Communist Party of Viet Nam.

The book, which took five years to complete, features more than 1,200 currency samples, including those issued and circulated in the country from the start of King Dinh Tien Hoang’s reign in 968.

The book on the history of Viet Nam’s banking system, meanwhile, highlights significant milestones, achievements, and lessons on its construction and development over the past 70 years.
