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