The Bank of Thailand will introduce a new commemorative note series in remembrance of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

In remembrance of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Bank of Thailand announced it will issue five new commemorative notes, beginning on September 20, 2017. The series will consist of 20-Baht, 50-Baht, 100-Baht, 500-Baht and 1,000-Baht notes. The color scheme, sizes, and portraits on these notes will be identical to the existing 16th series notes.

Each note depicts a different period in his majesty’s lifetime. The 20-Baht note shows the king as an infant and as a young boy.
