At Bao Tin Minh Chau, also in Hanoi, the price of gold bars ranged from VND80.5 million to VND82.4 million.

SJC gold rings were quoted at VND69 million per tael for buying and VND70.25 million per tael for selling, increasing by VND100,000 and VND150,000 compared to the previous day, respectively.

Gold ring prices at Bao Tin Minh Chau remained stable at between VND70.1 million and VND71.4 million.
