Thailand new signature 100-baht note confirmed

A new 100-baht note (US$2.80) has been reported with the signature of สุชาติ ธาดาธำรงเวช (Suchat Thadathamrongwet), who served from September 24 to December 19, 2008. Given his very short term in office, Suchat’s notes may be extremely hard to find in the future. Only this denomination has been reported with this signature combination (the signature of the governor remains that of ธาริษา วัฒนเกส, Tharisa Watthanakase), who has served since November 8, 2006.

Collectors can expect to see new varieties with the signature of the new minister of finance, กรณ์ จาติกวณิช (Korn Chatikavanij), who took over from Suchat on December 20, 2008.
