Bank of Thailand (BOT) has organised "Thai Banknote Expo", a two day event to let public know more about history of Thai banknotes, identification of counterfeits, taking care of banknotes, etc. Commemorative banknotes issued during the last 10 years are also on sale. Public can exchange soiled banknotes as well.
On 26th there will be 300 lots of banknotes for auction. The lots are mainly made up of specimen notes and banknotes having solid serial numbers.
Many banknotes are on display following the theme "Best of Thai banknotes". Extremely rare banknotes right from the 1st series to unissued varieties are on display. The unissued notes and provisional issues are just awesome. I did not even know that some of these banknotes ever existed. They have not been reported in catalogues or numismatic websites. I will cover them next week.
Overall the expo was small but very informative. Below images show the atmosphere inside the expo.
