Hi, CD

I just moved and found some Vietnam dong notes given to me by my friend quite awhile ago.

Are the 1,000 and 10,000 notes still in use in Vietnam?

Thank you for your help!

I brought a 10,000 and a 5,000 dong note back from Vietnam 2 months ago. I don't remember getting any 1,000 notes while I was there. So in theory, your 10,000s will still be good. However, if they are too old people might not take them. (This happened to me in India when I took some 2003 notes over in 2015. They had enhanced the currency since then to combat counterfeiting and people would not take the older 500 and 100 rupee notes.) But a 10,000 dong note is only worth about $0.50 US so people may not be as fussy about such small denominations.

I have a 10,000 dong note in my wallet right now (lingering from a trip out there last year). So the answer is yes for 10,000, cannot remember for 1,000.
