Did you ever imagine that the old and familiar Vietnam currency notes could get a new look and feel? Did you know that there are hidden stories behind them? Well, if not, now you do!
With the introduction of the new generation of cashless payment methods, the usage of traditional paper money has declined to a great extent in Vietnam. However, it is not lost forever; on the contrary, it has found its way back with a brand-new look.
The New Generation Currency (NGC) series that started circulating from November 2018 has triggered a substantial increase in interest among Vietnamese people. This is mainly because they are more aesthetically pleasing and have hidden messages. If you have one of these rare NGC bills in your possession or know someone who does, read on to find out what they say!
