Her Majesty the Queen’s commemorative banknotes available for exchange

August 3, 2016

Members of the public can exchange their existing 500-baht banknotes with the new commemorative banknotes of similar denomination marking the 7th cycle birthday anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen as of August 11 – one day before the birthday.

Altogether 20 million 500-baht banknotes were printed. They can be exchanged at all commercial and state-owned banks and through 10,000 ATMs across the country which bear a sticker with a message that says the machine contains the commemorative banknotes.

The front side of the new banknote features the image of His Majesty the King in full gown of the Maha Chakri dynasty whereas the back side bears the old image of the Royal Family, the Queen’s image as she inspected products from royally-sponsored projects and image of the Queen’s orchid and rose.
