Thailand 2009 - new king's portrait

New circulating types:

The king's portrait has changed, so, all the items are new KM types.
Also the 1, 5 and 10 satang little aluminium coins exist with the new portrait. They are almost impossible to get in the streets due to their low value.

  1. The 10 Bath coin are dated 2551, so I understand that the year is 2008.

  2. All the coins except 1Baht were minted in 2008 but released in 2009. Therefore, two different types of coins exist for year 2008.
    See numis-asia.blogspot.com for details.
