The one-baht coin is a currency unit of the Thai baht. It is commonly called rian baht by Thai speakers (rian meaning "coin" in Thai). Like all coins in Thailand, its obverse features King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Its reverse features Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram or Wat Phra Kaew, the royal temple in Bangkok's Grand Palace complex.

2009 changes[edit]

On February 2, 2009, the Treasury Department announced changes to several circulating coins. The composition of the one-baht coin will change from cupronickel to nickel-clad iron, reducing the mass from 3.4 grams to 3.0 grams. The obverse image has also been updated to a more recent portrait of the king.[1]
