This series of Vietnam banknote consists of ten denominations that include 100 Dong, 200 Dong, 500 Dong, 1000 Dong, 2000 Dong, 5000 Dong, 10000 Dong, 20000 Dong, 50000 Dong and 100000 Dong. They were issued in the year of 1987, 1988, 1990 and 1991. The 10000 Dong and 50000 Dong were reprinted in 1993 and 1994.

The huge gap in between the lowest denomination i.e. 100 Dong to the highest denomination of 100000 Dong was mainly due to the high inflation rate happened in Vietnam in 1980s to 1990s. Despite the huge range denominations in Vietnamese banknote, this series of banknote is still as a valid currency in Vietnam. Occasionally, smaller denominations notes i.e. 500 Dong or 1000 Dong are given as small changes during the daily transaction.
