    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.

    As these notes are intended to be kept rather than spent you could say the whole 100 Baht (minus production costs) is "profit". In another place I have read 600,000,000 Baht is being donated to the Kings projects.

    600,000,000 baht divided by 20,000,000 (the number of notes produced and sold) = 30 baht per note. Works out perfect.

    If anyone got one of these notes could tell me the prefix to the serial number I would be interested (the two characters before the seven digit number.)?

    As an educated guess I would say 9K, but that would only allow for ten million (actually 9,999,999) notes so there would have to be a second one. By the way, if you have ANY Thai banknote where the letter is S it is rarer than normal...

    Or, they add an extra digit after 9,999,999
    If it's not true, don't say it. If it's not yours, don't take it. If it's not right, don't do it.

    No, there is only ever 9,999,999 in a batch.

    Mine reads ø (8) then ... i can't even find the symbol that follows. It's not a ¡ (k) though. Looks more like this ¯ (but isn't). Maybe you can zoom in? (not sure on the quality) on the photos i posted. Those pics are of my actual note.

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

    This thread has prompted me to look at some Thai bank notes given to me in presentation cases except for one which is 10 baht with a photo of a very young king on the front and a figure on a horse on the rear. it is light brown in colour. the others are :-

    a 60 baht note

    An uncut sheet of 1,5 and 10 baht all with the same serial number from 2007.

    500 baht with a gold hologram surrounded by a clear see through panel. This is in a presentation folder with an explanation booklet in Thai

    a 50 baht note similar to the description above but white hologram.

    Any offers?
