Thailand issues commemorative banknote series

The Bank of Thailand has started issuing the commemorative banknote series commemorating the death of King Bhumibol today. This series was announced in July 2017.

The regular 20-, 50-, 100-, 500- and 1000-bath notes of the 16th series now have a special reverse side depicting the life of the late King. These images are:

  • 20 baht: the early life of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
  • 50 baht: H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s royal ceremonies and duties during the early time of his accession to the throne.
  • 100 baht: H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s kindness through royal duties in rural areas.
  • 500 baht: H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s wisdom and talents reflected through royal projects.
  • 1,000 baht: The late reign of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the beloved King of Thai people.

The security features are identical to the 16th series banknotes. There is however a special feature located on the reverse side. The area around the portrait of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej will illuminate when viewed under ultraviolet light.
