In 1946, the Government, President Ho
Chi Minh and Finance Ministry decided to choose Chi Ne plantation (now located
in Co Nghia commune) owned by Do Dinh Thien as a money-printing factory of the
Democratic Republic of Vietnam. For the first time, banknotes of the Democratic
Republic of Vietnam were printed and circulated nationwide thanks to the
factory’s staff. Thien was a patriotic capitalist who donated his family’s
legacy to the fight for national independence and freedom. Chi Ne plantation
was also a place where Party and State high-ranking officials stopped for a
short while, including President Ho on February 19 and February 21, 1947 during
his working trip to the central province of Thanh Hoa.
Accompanied by Finance Minister Le Van
Hien and Director of the factory Pham Quang Chuc, the leader talked with
officials, workers and guards of the factory.
Dinh Thi Binh, deputy head of the
district’s relic site management board, said the factory was classified as a
national relic site by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in 2007.
Work started on the relic site in 2010 covering
15.5 hectares with a
view to restoring the money-printing factory.
The site is currently divided into
three major areas, including a memorial dedicated to President Ho Chi Minh
which welcomes numerous visitors during holidays, a money-printing factory
(1946-1947) with two rows of artifacts and a banknote warehouse.
The factory was also named in the
Guinness Vietnam records as the first of its kind in the country./.
