News from the Bank of Thailand after the King's dead

The Bank of Thailand has announced in the wake of the King's dead that it will continue issuing banknotes with the image of King Bhumibol on the front. This is good news for the Thai because there were concerns that the current banknotes would become obsolete after the King's passing. 

There is also some other (good) news for us collectors because the note you knew would be issued is coming: a new commemorative banknote celebrating the late King's 7th cycle birthday on 25 October 2016. A total of 200,000-300,000 notes will be issued and the 100-baht note will come with a pamphlet. The new notes will be sold for 200 baht.
