Thai - 11th Series Banknote

The 11th Series of Thai banknote consists of five denominations namely 5 Baht, 10 Baht, 20 Baht, 100 Baht and 500 Baht. This series of banknote was issued started from the lowest denomination of 5 Baht in June 1969 to the highest denomination of 500 Baht in July 1975. The 500 Baht was printed for the first time by Bank of Thailand.

One of the interesting fact of this series of banknote is the involvement of the Note Printing Works which had begun their operations with the printing of banknotes in 1969. The Note Printing Works had managed to get through the whole production process, including the designing and engraving. But, the initial stage of its operation did rely on the foreign experts especially in producing the printing plates with joint effort from the Fine Arts Department particularly in unique Thai characteristics.

I personally like this series of the note because of the unique images depicted at the back of the notes. The images are so fine and truly reflect the Thai culture.
