Thai coins : 01 f - 10 baht commemorative coins

It's been a while, but there is so much to post about the bimetallic coins from Thailand. In my previous posts I showed many 10 baht coins, and there are still lots to go ...

100 years after the foundation of the Insperctors General's Department, on May 6, 2003, this commemorative coin was emitted.
The head of King Bumibhol is on the front side, and on the back, the logo of the Department.

On the same day, May6, 2003 a coin was emitted to honour the King's sister, Princess Galyani Vadhana.
She was the older sister of King Bumibhol, and she was active in the Thai Red Cross.
