New 100-Baht Banknotes On Circulation Thursday

The Bank of Thailand today unveiled the new 100-baht banknotes to commemorate and honour King Taksin the Great.

The new commemorative banknote will have the same size and colour as the old 100-baht banknotes currently in use, but with advanced anti-forgery printing design which allows the ordinary people and the blind to identify the value and differentiate easily.

The new banknote features the portrait of His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and the watermark of Thai numeral 100 is specially transparent when held against the light on both sides.

The new 100-baht banknotes will be in circulation on February 26.
