This made the entire 7 countries participating in sports events including Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia who have participated in the previous SEA Sports.

The commemorative coins were issued on July 15, 1977, with 3 denominations; $ 200 gold coins, $ 25 silver coins, and $ 1 cupro-nickel. All of these coins were minted in the Franklin Mint, USA.
