Not only for visiting and the delicious food, the amazing temples or the friendly population,
no, also for collecting it's one of my favourite countries.
Another, very odd banknote was issued on November 28, 2007
This note is, as my first article on 'odd notes' actually a 'double odd banknote', mabye even a 'triple odd bankote'...
First of all the size of the note is huge ! 229 mm x 147 mm (= 336.63 cm²)
Secondly, on the front of the note, 3 notes are printed, a 1 baht, a 5 baht and a 10 baht note.
So we get an uncut version of 3 banknotes on one page.
But finally, the back side of the 'note' is not the back side of the individual notes.
No, it's a new image, depicting the live of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, (Rama IX).

1-Baht banknote depicts the portrait of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the reigning monarch (Rama IX), the portrait of Their Majesties the King and the Queen granting an audience to various groups of people who paid tribute to His Majesty on the occasion of his coronation in 1950 at the Sutthaisawan Prasat Hall.
5-Baht banknote depicts the portrait of His Majesty in a royal procession by land, marking his 3rd Cycle Birthday Anniversary in 1963.
10-Baht banknote depicts the portrait of His Majesty granting an audience to various groups of people who paid tribute to His Majesty on the Auspicious Occasion of the 60th Anniversary Celebrations of His Majesty’s Accession to the Throne in 2006 at the Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall.
