The Vietnamese language uses the word "dông" as a term for any currency by adding a country's name before it. For example, Vietnamese-Americans may refer to the U.S. dollar as the "U.S. dông"; "U.S. hào" and "U.S. xu" are sometimes used to refer to the U.S. dime and cent. Therefore, the Vietnamese dong must be referred to as "dông Vietnam" (Vietnamese dông)
