From my time in country.  The reverse is amazing!  I've no clue how many Baht that would be...it's been a few years :-)

10 baht (what looks a bit like '90' at bottom left is the number 10).

That was confusing me, thank you!  I should have known that :-)

Back in the day it was enough for a ride on a baht bus :-)  Fun times!

10 Baht is the only bimetallic coin issued by Thailand and still the highest value circulation coin.

I did not know that.  Thank you!  Are these coins still in use?

Yes, they are very much in use, with same physical specifications, except that the king's effigy was changed to older effigy on obverse later on.
From this year, the obverse has effigy of the new King on obverse and his coat of arms on the reverse.

Nice!  I'll have to see if I can get one.  I haven't had a chance to visit in a long time.
