Thailand presents next series with new King

The Bank of Thailand has announced the first series with the portrait of the new King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun (or Rama X). The new series will be issued in two parts: the 20-, 50- and 100-bhat notes will be issued on the Chakri Memorial Day, 6 April 2018. The 500- and 1,000-baht notes will be issued on the King's birthday, 28 July 2018.

The  front side of  the  banknote in  all  denominations depicts  King  Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun in the Royal Thai Air Force uniform as the main portrait. The reverse side of each denomination depicts the portraits of two Kings in order of reign, along with the images of their memorable royal duties.

The sizes and the colors of the series 17 remain the same as the series 16. Most security features are also retained in the new series; however, some new features have been introduced:

  • Security  thread: located  on the  frontside  of  the banknote. Extra  moving effect is incorporated into the 100-Baht banknote security thread.
  • Vertical serial number: Roman alphabet with Arabic numerals are placed vertically.
