  16. News Update: Re: Central bank prints 70-baht banknotes to celebrate King’s 70th anniversary of acc

    600,000,000 baht divided by 20,000,000 (the number of notes produced and sold) = 30 baht per note. Works out perfect.
  17. News Update: Re: Central bank prints 70-baht banknotes to celebrate King’s 70th anniversary of acc

    I read "a portion" of the profit, is being donated to the King. Still, i think it was worth 100B. My gripe was with those buying in bulk to profiteer.
  18. News Update: Re: Central bank prints 70-baht banknotes to celebrate King’s 70th anniversary of acc

    It's kind of sad when something like this becomes a money making scheme for people. But at the same time, i suppose you could say the same about the royal mint, selling 70B for 100B. It's the same...
