The difference of 1,000 Baht circulated in 1999 and in 2000

The 1,000 Thai Baht notes circulated in 1999 and 2000 had the same design. This causes a lot of confusion for banknote collectors, especially those who are not experts in collecting Thai banknotes.

The same point:

  • The front is printed with the image of King Rama IX Bhumibol Adulyadej
  • On the back is printed the image of Pa Sak Jolasid Dam and King Rama IX Bhumibol Adulyadej

However, these two bills are different with different purposes for circulation. 1000 Thai baht circulated in 1999 to commemorate the 72nd Birthday of King Rama IX. While the 1000 baht in circulation in 2000 was just ordinary money in circulation. One difference is that the arms on the front printed on the banknote is different. If we look closely, we will clearly see the differences between these two bills.

    Thank you for your article, without this article it would be really difficult to recognize because the only difference is the arms.
