Trivia: The 10 baht coin and the 2 euro coin are identical, even vending machine's confuse them.Notjim 18:09, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Not identical, but very similar in size and layout. However the weight is slightly different, and AFAIK most vending machines are now upgraded to recognize the difference. andy 21:03, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)

What does "in bank circulation" on the coin section mean? Nik42 05:08, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

As a native Thai, I never seen any 10, 5 or 1 satang coin in public circulation. The smallest coin we ever use in everyday life is 25 satang. -- Bact 18:34, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
It means it's only for accounting purpose in bank where 1 satang could matter. It's not use in normal everyday life. You can get those from Royal Thai Mint but you don't have any chance to use them at their face value. -- Lerdsuwa 14:34, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

The Photo of a new TWO-BAHT Coin![edit]

You can check the new Two-Baht Coin on http://talk.sanook.com/hot/hot_03164.php.

Unicode[edit]

Why is the currency symbol "Thai Baht" not in the "Currency symbols" block of Unicode encoded? --84.61.3.61 18:23, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

Is this the correct title? Surely it isn't called the "Thai baht" and should thus be either at baht or baht (currency). violet/riga (t) 11:00, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

It is the consensus of Wikipedia:WikiProject Numismatics to use <Adjectival country name> <denomination> --Chochopk 12:07, 20 July 2006 (UTC)
Even when there is only one currency with that name? Suppose its consistent. violet/riga (t) 21:51, 20 July 2006 (UTC)
Yes, it is for consistency. --Chochopk 21:57, 20 July 2006 (UTC)
Indeed. —Nightstallion (?) 14:06, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

No mention of the de-linking of the Baht from the U.S. dollar triggering a huge financial crises in East Asia in 1997? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Daveswahl (talkcontribs) 15:18, 25 January 2007

Unspecified source for Image:175-227.jpg[edit]

I found Image:175-227.jpg and noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. Someone will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If it was obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If there are other files on this page, consider checking that they have specified their source and are tagged properly, too. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 01:43, 28 May 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Arabic numerals on banknotes[edit]

Steel?[edit]

I have a question about the statement that certain coins are made of X-plated/clad steel. The Thai word used by the treasury is เหล็ก /lek/, which means "iron". The word for steel is เหล็กกล้า /lek klaa/. Steel is, generally speaking, an iron/carbon alloy. Can someone provide evidence that it is actually steel? If not, I'll change the wording to "iron".

Also, I notice that different articles use the words X-plated and X-clad. There is a technical difference in the two processes. Can anyone say for certain which word is correct in this context? Thanks. --rikker (talk) 13:11, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

According to http://www.tclayton.demon.co.uk/metal.html#Steel, most modern iron coins are made of steel. So I don't think this case is an exception.
According to http://ecatalog.treasury.go.th/whatsnew/detail.php?id=176, they use the word "ชุบ" which is "plated," i.e., the outer layer is very thin. It would be much more complicated and expensive to make clad coins which have substantial outer layers. So my guess is that "plated" would be more appropriate. Warut (talk) 19:06, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
On this page http://ecatalog.treasury.go.th/coininfo/index.php?CoinType=1&gid=3, they use the words ชุบ /chup/ and เคลือบ /khlueap/, depending on the coin. They use the word เคลือบ /khlueap/ for the 5-baht coin, for example. It uses ชุบ /chup/ for the new 25- and 50-satang coins, the 1-baht and the 2-baht coins. In the list of discontinued coins found at http://ecatalog.treasury.go.th/coininfo/index.php?CoinType=1&gid=4, I notice ชุบ /chup/ is not used, but เคลือบ /khlueap/ is used for several of them. This leads me to believe there has been a technical change in the process. So is it the case that เคลือบ /khlueap/ = clad, and ชุบ /chup/ = plate? --rikker (talk) 12:43, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, those เคลือบ coins are clad coins like current American quarters, and Thai ชุบ coins are akin to post-1982 American penny coins which are copper-plated zinc. Warut (talk) 16:48, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:2 baht Obverse (2009).png[edit]

The image File:2 baht Obverse (2009).png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

The following images also have this problem:

Numbers[edit]

WP:MOS states that numbers from one to nine should be spelled out. "As a general rule, in the body of an article, single-digit whole numbers from zero to nine are spelled out in words" This will be a considerable task. Help if you have time. รัก-ไทย (talk) 17:22, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Also consider that Measurements, stock prices, and other quasi-continuous quantities are normally stated in figures, even when the value is a small positive integer: 9 mm, The option price fell to 5 within three hours after the announcement. And that Comparable quantities should be all spelled out or all figures: we may write either 5 cats and 32 dogs or five cats and thirty-two dogs, not five cats and 32 dogs. Most of the current formatting seems okay to me. --Paul_012 (talk) 19:23, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
The comparable quantities example is very clear. But a currency article is not simple data figure listing. Similar articles also need to be edited, especially for consistency. The US dollar article includes, "The U.S. dollar bill uses the decimal system, consisting of 100 equal cents (symbol ¢). In another division, there are 1,000 mills or ten dimes to a dollar, or 4 quarters to a dollar." It would be good if there could be a further discussion, and then revise WP:MOS to reflect the consensus. รัก-ไทย (talk) 04:32, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Introduction[edit]

What's with the strange intro that starts talking about sitting on the king's face? I laughed out loud when I first came to this article because of that. This might belong further into the article, and almost appears as covert vandalism.  TWeil  12:25, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Polymer/Paper Banknotes[edit]

The table might need a column indicating what each note is made from. The 50 Baht Blue is Polymer plastic, most of the others are paper, I believe. 122.148.138.107 (talk) 00:21, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
