A new 100-baht note is in circulation in Thailand as of Feb. 26,
according to a news release from the Bank of Thailand.
A portrait of currently reigning King Rama IX appears on the face
and a statue of King Taksin the Great is found on the back of the notes.
In addition, a hidden numeral 100 is inside the copper-colored
ornament on the far left side, on the face of the note. As the note is
tilted side to side, the numeral can be seen.
Other security features include:
➤ Arabic numerals 100 and Thai patterns are printed vertically with
greenish iridescent ink.
➤ A reflective holographic foil strip on the right side of the
note’s face contains the Royal Emblem, with Arabic numerals for 100 in
the center that appear to switch to Thai numerals when the note is tilted.
➤ A windowed color-shifting security thread is partially embedded on
the reverse side that changes from magenta to green upon tilting and
features an inscription related to the denomination.
➤ In the upper right end of the face design are seven tactile marks,
embossed horizontal lines of sequentially decreasing length, leading
downward toward three more tactile marks, in the shape of flowers that
represent the letter H, symbolizing “Hundred” (100), the denomination
