An 80-baht (GBP 1.60) commemorative banknote will be issued to celebrate the queen’s 80th birthday anniversary on 12 August 2555 (2012). Likewise, a 100-baht (GBP2.00) commemorative banknote will be issued to celebrate His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn’s 5th Cycle Birthday Anniversary on 28 July 2555 (2012).
Two million commemorative 80-baht notes will be available as of 9 August encased with a hard-paper cover at 120 baht, and profits will be donated to charity. The blue note is unqiue in that it measures only 80 millimeters wide, representing 80 years of age. The front features a portrait of the king and queen. The watermark is of the queen with an electrotype crowned monogram. The Motion windowed thread on the back features the number 80 and the rose image.
Ten million commemorative 100-baht notes will be issued into circulation on 27 July 2012. The front of the note is the same as the current circulating 100-baht note, but the back has a portrait of the prince as well as a scene of His Royal Highness being conferred the title of Crown Prince.
