The Vietnamese Dong is the official currency of Vietnam. It is divided into 10 hao, which are subsequently divided into 10 xu. The hao and xu have become so insignificant recently that they are no longer issued. Bill denominations exist in 200; 1000; 2,000; 5,000; 10,000; 20,000; 50,000, 100,000, and a newly issued 500,000 worth approx. 30 American dollars. Dong, which literally means "copper" in Vietnamese, was originally named for the currencies used when Vietnam was still part of French Indochina. After the fall of Saigon, in 1975, Vietnam changed the name of its currency to the "liberation dong". Each new dong was worth 500 of the southern dong. The unification of the country led to the unification of the currency as well. In the mid 1980's, the dong was revalued, with the new dong equal to 10 old dongs. As of June 2005, Vietnam was the second least valued currency after Romania.

Renminbi, literally translated as "the people's currency", is currently the official currency, or the legal tender of the People's Republic of China. It is also known as the Chinese Yuan (CNY) and by the symbol "¥".
