AWN92:  I was in my Chase branch the other day to make another purchase of VND. The teller there knows me as "The Vietnam Guy" because I go in there every paycheck and order more. Anyway, she told me that there was another client that tried to exchange about $6000 worth of VND when she came back from Vietnam a few weeks earlier. She had a few of the 1 million VND notes. The teller told me she had trouble exchanging them because, and I quote "They are taking the higher denominations out of circulation." I know we hear a lot about the IQD, but I thought this was interesting to hear about the VND.
