Thailand is a Country for Currency Commemoratives!

By George Cuhaj

Thailand has been active in using numismatic items for fundraising projects in support of the King's Charities.

On December 5 2007, in honor of his 80th Birthday, a three note uncut sheet (on the face) featuring a 1, 5, and 10 Baht note designs from 1945.

The Back of the sheet features one complete image, in age groups. The top, behind the 1 Baht feature his childhood, the 5 Baht area features his Wedding, Coronation and royal visits, and the back of the 10 Baht features recent Thai development and an image from his 60th anniversary of accession to the throne.

The large format sheet comes in a very nice folder.

In recent years, the royal family has issued commemoratives for their Golden Wedding Anniversary, Centennial of Thai currency, The kings 60th Birthday, The King and the Queens 72nd Birthday. All of these are very well designed notes, and have proved popular.
