The first issue of 1,000 baht banknotes of the reign of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn has won The Best New Banknote Award at the High Security Printing Asia 2018 international conference held in Hanoi, Vietnam.

 

The banknote was cited for its unique printing technology using the optically variable magnetic ink (OVMI), the first of its kind for Thai banknotes which creates three-dimensional moving patterns and switching colours when observing from different angles.

 

It was named the Best New Banknote at the three-day High Security Printing Asia 2018 forum in Hanoi that ended on Wednesday, according to the Bank of Thailand’s announcement on Friday.

They just had to make it the same color as the 100 baht note.  Night time taxi drivers will love this .

I suppose they do need the latest security and high technology with the 1,000b note as it's worth so much.itll soon be worth more than the uk's £50 note.

Wonder if the voters knew it was the same colour as the 100 bht note, a little confusing for those with poor eyesight...🤔

Morning TA ... it's just a little different unless you have your rose coloured glasses on ...
