The Bank of Thailand has launched a new 100-Baht banknote.
The new banknote is part of the 16th series of banknotes issued by Thailand’s Central Bank, and entered circulation on the 26 February 2015.
According to the Bank’s press release, the new banknote continues to use the same colour and dimensions as its predecessor, but contains several new and enhanced security features aimed at authentication by members of the public and banknote sorting machines.
Security features include:
- a watermark
- a latent image – numeral “100” can be see when tilting the banknote
- iridescent ink
- a foil stripe hologram
- a windowed colour-shifting security thread
- tactile markings to allow the visually impaired identify the denomination
The Central Bank advised the the previous 100-Baht banknote will remain legal tender for the time being.
