Grey-shanked Douc Langar
Coin features the one of the most beautiful primates in the world, the Grey-shanked Douc Langur. Endemic to Indochina, these beautiful Douc Langurs have distinctive markings and bright colours, which differ from the other Douc Langurs

Cat Ba Langur
Coin features the golden headed langur - the Cat Ba Langur, which is found only on Cat Ba Island, located 30 kilometres off the coast of Hai Phong, in Halong Bay, North Vietnam. The leaf-eater numbers about 55 and is only found on Cat Ba Island. Thought to be extinct in the 1990s, its potential as a tourist attraction could aid its preservation.

Vietnam Culture Coin
We are pleased to introduce for the first time a coin representative of the unique culture of Vietnam. The coin features a Vietnamese lady in her traditional costume and the Dan Nguyet, a sort of guitar with a round wooden sound box from which it probably derives its name, nguyet (moon). It has a long neck which emits particularly melodious sounds.

This instrument has an important role in Vietnamese traditional music. Due to its long neck and high frets, it is also used as an ornament.
