Thailand to issue new commemorative banknote

The Bank of Thailand has announced that a new commemorative note is coming our way. I love the commemorative banknotes of Thailand very much (as can be seen in my personal collection) so I'm definitely looking forward to this one! 

This 70-baht banknote is in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the accession to the throne by King Bhumibol Adulyadej on 9 June 2016, which is also the issue date. It measures 89 x 162 mm and a total of 20 million banknotes will be issued. 

From the press release: "The front of the banknote depicts the portrait of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in the uniform of the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, the Royal House of Chakri gown with the Most Illustrious Order of the Royal House of Chakri, and the Knight Grand Cordon (Special Class) of the Most Illustrious Order of Chula Chom Klao breast chain.

The portrait of H.M. the King in full regalia holding the Sword of Victory, standing in front of the Phuttan Kanchanasinghat Throne inside the Paisan Taksin Hall is illustrated on the reverse of the banknote."

The note will also be issued with a folder like all recent commemorative banknotes.
