Thai Banknote - 13th Series

Inherited from the 12th Series, the 13th Series of Thai banknote consists of two denominations i.e. 50 Baht and 500 Baht. In conjunction of the the Bicentennial Celebration of Bangkok city in 1982, these notes adopted the theme of the vignettes of significant historical events of Bangkok city on the reverse side of the notes.

Despite the celebration was held in 1982, these notes were only issued in 1985 due to insufficient printing capacity.

This 50 Baht note was issued by Bank of Thailand on 20th September 1985. The front features the portrait of King Rama IX and the back features the picture of Statue of King Prachatipok (King Rama VII)

This 500 Baht note was issued by Bank of Thailand on 5th November 1987. The front features the portrait of King Rama IX and the back features the picture of Statue of King Phra Putayodfa Julalok (King Rama I)
