World News on Banknotes: King Bhumibol has died

Sad news for the Thai: today the royal palace has announced that King Bhumibol or Rama IX has died at the age of 88. The late king had an almsot divine status in Thailand and was the subject of many beautiful (commemorative) banknotes the past few years. It is expected that his son Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn will succeed him.
