Thailand gets a new 500 baht banknote

One of my favourite countries to collect is about to issue a new banknote. The Bank of Thailand has released this press release describing the new 500 baht note which will be issued on 12 May 2014. This is the third note of serie 16. Its basic look (purple and 72x156 mm) is the same as the current 500 baht note but the portrait of King Bhumibol has been updated and several new security features have been added:

  • Colour-shifting ink with latent image
  • New watermark
  • Hologram foil stripe
  • Windowed colour-shifting security thread with moving-boxes animation
  • Iridescent Coating
