Thailand: legal tender
« on: August 09, 2018, 05:24:55 AM »
Are all old Thai coins (sided and large 5 baht) and notes (old series; 5, 10 baht) still legal tender/valid in Thailand?

Yes. all notes issued after 1997 and coins are still legal tender.
Coins below 1 Baht are practically of no use.

I've read that the 5 and 10 baht of the 80s series is still valid, but I can't trust TripAdvisor as a credible source unfortunately

Only series 15, 16 and 17 are legal tender

see central Bank site

Other can be exchanged privately, obviously depending on condition etc
