A social media influencer who started receiving orders for notes from December 2023 said that the US$2 notes with dragon images are selling for about VND150,000.
Macau banknotes are among the favorite items for customers. Many traders share that demand for new money peaked near the end of the year and will last until Tet.
Five Bhutanese banknotes with dragon images cost VND150,000. Weeks before Tet, many people begin to prepare for buying new or special banknotes which are believed to bring luck and happiness for the new year.
Gold coins are also in high demand with just one month to go before the start of Tet.
